In eukaryotic cells, several pathways exist for the internalization of plasma membrane proteins and extracellular cargo molecules. These endocytic pathways can be divided into clathrin-dependent and clathrin-independent pathways. While clathrin-dependent pathways are known to be involved in a variety of cellular processes in plants, clathrin-independent pathways have so far only been identified in animal and yeast cells. Here we show that internalization of fluorescent glucose into BY-2 cells… CONTINUE READING
