Clathrin, the main constituent of coated vesicles, is anterogradely transported exclusively in the slow component b (SCb) of axonal transport. However, it has not been shown whether the 30-36-kDa clathrin-associated proteins (CAPs), which may regulate assembly of clathrin into coated vesicles, are transported along with clathrin in SCb. Clarification of this point has implications for the functional state of anterogradely transported clathrin. To investigate CAPs transport, retinal ganglion… CONTINUE READING
