Clathrin-mediated endocytosis is a vesicular transport event involved in the internalization and recycling of receptors participating in signal transduction events and nutrient import as well as in the reformation of synaptic vesicles. Recent studies in vitro and in living cells have provided a number of new insights into the initial steps of clathrin-coated vesicle formation and the membrane factors involved in this process. The unexpected complexity of these interactions at the cytosol… CONTINUE READING
