Lattice Formation of Clathrin

Justin Taraska (NIH/NHLBI) et al.,
Project Description:
Dozens of proteins capture, polymerize and reshape the clathrin lattice during clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME). Six key observed structural phenomena of clathrin-associated proteins are hypothesized to be occurring during different stages of pit development. The illustration supports the finding that endocytic proteins distribute into distinct spatial zones in relation to the edge of the clathrin lattice.
