Dynamin is a GTP-hydrolysing protein that is an essential participant in clathrin-mediated endocytosis by cells. It self-assembles into ‘collars’ in vitro which also form in vivo at the necks of invaginated coated pits. This self-assembly stimulates dynamin's GTPase activity and it has been proposed that dynamin hydrolyses GTP in order to generate the force needed to sever vesicles from the plasma membrane. A mechanism is now described in which self-assembly of dynamin is coordinated by a… CONTINUE READING
