Investigating new protein components of the endocytic machinery in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Clathrin-mediated endocytosis is an essential eukaryotic process which allows cells to control membrane lipid and protein content, signaling processes, and uptake of nutrients among other functions. About 60 proteins have been identified that compose the endocytic machinery in Saccharyomes cerevisiae, or budding yeast. Clathrin-mediated endocytosis is highly conserved between yeast and mammals in terms of both protein content and timing of protein arrival. First, there is an immobile phase in which clathrin and other coat components concentrate at endocytic sites. Second, another wave of proteins ...
