Exploring the roles of Bzz1 in clathrin-mediated endocytosis
Clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) is a highly conserved process in eukaryotes. This particular route of endocytosis plays an integral role in virus internalization, nutrient uptake, regulation of signal transduction, and overall cell health. CME can be characterized by three distinct stages: coat formation, cargo binds a receptor on the plasma membrane which leads to the recruitment of coat proteins and the formation of a clathrin coated pit; actin polymerization, globular actin will polymerize in such a way that the vesicle can overcome the turgor pressure of the plasma membrane; and scission ...
