Below pH6, clathrin induces fusion of liposomes containing phosphatidylserine (PS) [Maezawa et al. (1989) Biochemistry 28, 1422-1428]. Under similar conditions clathrin forms self-aggregates, suggesting that the associated form of clathrin may be involved in the fusion process. For examination of this possibility, the extent of fluorescence energy transfer from N-(p-(2-benzimidazolyl)phenyl)maleimide (BIPM)-labeled clathrin to N-(7-dimethyl-amino-4-methyl-3-coumarinyl)maleimide (DACM)-labeled… CONTINUE READING
