Investigations into the mechanisms which regulate entry of integral membrane proteins, and associated ligands, into the cell through vesicular carriers (endocytosis) have greatly benefited from the application of live-cell imaging. Several excellent recent reviews have detailed specific aspects of endocytosis, such as entry of particular cargo, or the different routes of internalization. The aim of the present review is to highlight how advances in live-cell fluorescence microscopy have…

Advanced Optical Imaging of Endocytosis

To fully characterize endocytic pathways and their intertwined relationship to other signalling pathways, there is a need to visualize the dynamics of multiple species at the plasma membrane and within the cell with high threedimensional spatial resolution.

Systems biology and physical biology of clathrin-mediated endocytosis.

This review describes the application of experimental data and modeling of intracellular endocytic trafficking mechanisms with a focus on the process of clathrin-mediated endocytosis, and describes membrane topologies, curvature mechanisms, and energetics.

Single Event Resolution of Plant Plasma Membrane Protein Endocytosis by TIRF Microscopy

A robust method to directly visualize cell surface proteins using TIRF microscopy combined to a high throughput, automated and unbiased analysis pipeline to determine the temporal recruitment profile of proteins to single sites of endocytosis, using the departure of clathrin as a physiological reference for scission.

Novel functions of endocytic player clathrin in mitosis

The findings of the multiple functions of clathrin besides endocytosis have expanded the understanding of the basic cellular activities and mainly focuses on theClathrin-dependent mechanisms involved in spindle assembly and chromosome alignment.

Actin Dynamics Regulate Multiple Endosomal Steps during Kaposi's Sarcoma-Associated Herpesvirus Entry and Trafficking in Endothelial Cells

An important role for actin dynamics in the internalization and endosomal sorting/trafficking of KSHV and clathrin-mediated endocytosis in endothelial cells is indicated.

Endocytosis controlled by monolayer area asymmetry

Findings in the present study and in recent publications suggest that monolayer area asymmetry induced by the translocation of lipids is not the only but one of the mechanisms leading to curvature generation necessary for endocytic events.

Endocytosis of nanomedicines.

Multiple Pathways Involved in Porcine Parvovirus Cellular Entry and Trafficking toward the Nucleus

The results demonstrated that following binding to sialic acids on cell surface glycoproteins, the virus used both clathrin-mediated endocytosis and macropinocytotic pathways to gain access into cells, unique among members of this viral family.

Different Contributions of Clathrin- and Caveolae-Mediated Endocytosis of Vascular Endothelial Cadherin to Lipopolysaccharide-Induced Vascular Hyperpermeability

It is suggested that clathrin-mediated and caveolae-mediated endocytosis of VE-cad contribute to LPS-induced vascular hyperpermeability, although they contribute via different mechanism.



Understanding Living Clathrin‐Coated Pits

The direct observation of CCP‐associated proteins including clathrin itself, dynamin and, most recently, AP‐2 has considerably challenged old models, confirming some points but raising very interesting new questions.

Dynamics of clathrin and adaptor proteins during endocytosis.

A model where AP-2 serves a cargo-sorting function before endocytosis, whereas alternate adaptors, such as epsin, actually link cargo to the clathrin coat surrounding nascent endocytic vesicles is supported.

Spatial dynamics of receptor-mediated endocytic trafficking in budding yeast revealed by using fluorescent alpha-factor derivatives.

This work synthesized biologically active fluorescent mating-pheromone derivatives and demonstrated that receptor-mediated endocytosis in budding yeast occurs via the clathrin- and actin-mediatedEndocytic internalization pathway, mediated by the actin cytoskeleton.

Impact of live cell imaging on coated vesicle research.

A dynamic actin cytoskeleton functions at multiple stages of clathrin-mediated endocytosis.

A key role for actin during clathrin-mediated endocytosis in mammalian cells is demonstrated, and stage-specific biochemical assays and quantitative fluorescence and electron microscopic analyses establish that F-actin dynamics are required for multiple distinct stages of clathin-coated vesicle formation, including coated pit formation, constriction, and internalization.

Endocytosis: clathrin-mediated membrane budding.

The AP-2 Complex Is Excluded from the Dynamic Population of Plasma Membrane-associated Clathrin*

The results suggest that colocalized clathrin/AP-2 puncta may represent loci for coated pit production and that previous models that assumed AP-2 was retained withinClathrin coats during endocytosis may need to be re-evaluated.

Real-time analysis of clathrin-mediated endocytosis during cell migration

Observations suggest a re-evaluation of the functional differences between dynamin1 and dynamin2, and of the role of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in cell migration.

Biological basket weaving: formation and function of clathrin-coated vesicles.

Although clathrin coat assembly drives CCV formation, this fundamental reaction is modified by different regulatory proteins, depending on where CCVs are forming in the cell, likely reflects the distinct biological roles of CCVs at the plasma membrane and trans-Golgi network.

Caveolar endocytosis of simian virus 40 reveals a new two-step vesicular-transport pathway to the ER

The results demonstrate the existence of a two-step transport pathway from plasma-membrane caveolae, through an intermediate organelle (termed the caveosome), to the ER, which bypasses endosomes and the Golgi complex, and is part of the productive infectious route used by SV40.
