Endocytosis: An assembly protein for clathrin cages


The protein AP180 is known to have clathrin-assembly activity in vitro. AP180 has now been found to be crucial for synaptic vesicle endocytosis and the maintenance of a uniform-size vesicle population in vivo. These results significantly advance our understanding of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in the synapse and elsewhere.
