The actin filament (F-actin) cytoskeleton associates dynamically with the plasma membrane and is thus ideally positioned to participate in endocytosis. Indeed, a wealth of genetic and biochemical evidence has confirmed that actin interacts with components of the endocytic machinery, although its precise function in endocytosis remains unclear. Here, we use 4D microscopy to visualize the contribution of actin during compensatory endocytosis in Xenopus laevis eggs. We show that the actin… CONTINUE READING
