Discovery and characterization of the SLAC complex and its role in actin polymerization during clathrin-mediated endocytosis
Endocytosis is the process by which cells control the lipid and transmembrane protein compositions in order to comply with certain requirements essential for cellular function. The different forms of endocytosis provide the cell with a discriminatory system where specific cargoes are selected, packed and internalized when there is a particular physiological demand. Given the importance of endocytic internalization routes for a variety of cellular processes, it is not surprising that defects in the protein machinery involved in these pathways leads to pathologies. Examples of some metabolic ...
