Macropinocytosis, a form of bulk uptake of fluid and solid cargo into cytoplasmic vacuoles, called macropinosomes, has been studied mostly in relation to antigen presentation. Early membrane traffic events occurring in this process are, however, largely unknown. Using human dendritic cells we show that a marked increase in the rate of macropinocytosis occurs a few minutes after application of two markers (small latex beads or dextran), depends on a slow intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i… Expand
Enlargeosome Traffic: Exocytosis Triggered by Various Signals Is Followed by Endocytosis, Membrane Shedding or Both
TLDR
Depending on the stimulation, the cell‐surface expansion by enlargeosome exocytosis is not always recycled but can induce release of specific membranes, possibly important in the pericellular environment. Expand

TLDR
Growth-factor signalling shares core components with macropinocytosis, based around phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-kinases), and it is suggested that it evolved to take control of ancient feeding structures through a coupled growth factor receptor. Expand
The regulated exocytosis of enlargeosomes is mediated by a SNARE machinery that includes VAMP4
TLDR
VAMP4, an R-SNARE that has never been shown to participate in regulated exocytoses, therefore appears to be harboured in the membrane of enlargeosomes and to be a member of the machinery mediating their regulatedExocytosis. Expand
Non-apoptotic cell death associated with perturbations of macropinocytosis
TLDR
Examples of cell death associated with dysfunctional macropinocytosis are reviewed and the possibility that small molecules capable of altering macropinosome trafficking or function might be useful as therapeutic agents against cancers that are resistant to drugs that work by inducing apoptosis is raised. Expand
Endocytosis unplugged: multiple ways to enter the cell
TLDR
This work provides an account of various endocytic routes, their mechanisms of operation and occurrence across phyla, and a description of the functional hierarchy of molecular players in these mechanisms of internalization. Expand
Identification of a developmentally regulated pathway of membrane retrieval in neuronal growth cones
TLDR
A constitutive, high-capacity plasma-membrane-recycling activity in the axonal growth cones is identified, which is mediated by a novel bulk endocytic pathway that is mechanistically related to macropinocytosis. Expand
Active macropinocytosis induction by stimulation of epidermal growth factor receptor and oncogenic Ras expression potentiates cellular uptake efficacy of exosomes
TLDR
It is demonstrated the active induction of macropinocytosis (accompanied by actin reorganisation, ruffling of plasma membrane, and engulfment of large volumes of extracellular fluid) by stimulation of cancer-related receptors and show that the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor significantly enhances the cellular uptake of exosomes.

From Pinocytosis to Methuosis—Fluid Consumption as a Risk Factor for Cell Death
TLDR
Important cellular mechanisms, components, and processes that may lead to methuotic CD upon their derangement are highlighted and various aspects of the complex mutual interplay between extracellular and intracellular ions and ion gradients, the PM and vesicular membrane, phosphoinositides, monomeric G proteins and their targets, as well as the submembranous cytoskeleton are described. Expand
Differential Regulation of Macropinocytosis by Abi1/Hssh3bp1 Isoforms
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Abi1 isoforms 2 and 3 differentially regulate macropinocytosis as a consequence of their different relative affinities for activated Rac1 in Wave 2 complex, which raises the possibility that isoform-specific roles occur in other Abi 1 functions. Expand
The closure of Pak1‐dependent macropinosomes requires the phosphorylation of CtBP1/BARS
TLDR
It is shown that upon activation of the epidermal growth factor receptor, CtBP1/BARS is required for macropinocytic internalization and infection of echovirus 1, and phosphorylated on a specific serine that is a substrate for p21‐activated kinase, with this phosphorylation being essential for the fission of the macrop inocytic cup.

Origin, originality, functions, subversions and molecular signalling of macropinocytosis.
TLDR
It is suggested that, in enterocytes that do not normally phagocytose, the P13K-PLC signalling pathway leading to selective induction of macropinocytosis at the luminal surface has been subverted by enteropathogenic bacteria to penetrate via "spacious phagosomes". Expand
Enlargeosome, an exocytic vesicle resistant to nonionic detergents, undergoes endocytosis via a nonacidic route.
TLDR
Specific aspects of enlargeosomes are defined and suggested their participation, in addition to cell differentiation and repair, to other physiological and pathological processes are suggested. Expand
Dynamin regulates focal exocytosis in phagocytosing macrophages.
TLDR
Results suggest that dynamin is involved in the production and/or movement of vesicles from an intracellular organelle to the cell surface to support membrane expansion around the engulfed particle. Expand
The coated pit and macropinocytic pathways serve distinct endosome populations
TLDR
It is suggested that different endocytic mechanisms can give rise to distinct endosome populations as defined by labeling with transferrin or with LDL. Expand
The endocytic activity of dendritic cells
TLDR
It is reported that dendritic cells can vigorously internalize solutes by macropinocytosis, delivering these to MHC class II-rich vesicles (MIIVs), where they presumably can be converted to peptides and recycled to the cell surface as MHC II-peptide complexes. Expand
Adenovirus triggers macropinocytosis and endosomal leakage together with its clathrin-mediated uptake
TLDR
It is concluded that Ad signaling from the cell surface controls the induction of macropinosome formation and leakage, and this correlates with viral exit to the cytosol and infection. Expand
Macropinosome maturation and fusion with tubular lysosomes in macrophages
TLDR
Macropinosome progress through macrophages showed features of both the maturation and vesicle shuttle models of endocytosis, beginning with a maturation process and ending by merger into a stable, resident lysosomal compartment. Expand
Focal Exocytosis of Vamp3-Containing Vesicles at Sites of Phagosome Formation
TLDR
It is shown that polarized fusion of VAMP3 vesicles precedes phagosome sealing, and it is likely that targeted delivery of endomembranes contributes to the elongation of pseudopods. Expand
Macropinocytosis Is the Endocytic Pathway That Mediates Macrophage Foam Cell Formation with Native Low Density Lipoprotein*
TLDR
Macropinocytosis of LDL taken up in the fluid phase without receptor-mediated binding of LDL is a novel endocytic pathway that generates macrophage foam cells as a new pathway to target for modulating foam cell formation in atherosclerosis. Expand
The Role of Aquaporins in Dendritic Cell Macropinocytosis
TLDR
It is reported that two members of the aquaporin family, AQP3 and AQP7, are expressed in immature DCs and are downregulated after maturation, indicating that aquaporins represent essential elements of a volume control mechanism that allows DCs to concentrate macrosolutes taken up via macropinocytosis.
