    Clathrin coat controls synaptic vesicle acidification by blocking vacuolar ATPase activity

    Zohreh Farsi et al.
    Parallel measurements of pH gradient and membrane potential at the single vesicle level have revealed that the synaptic vesicle acidification is initiated by removal of its clathrin coat, which blocks vesicular ATPase activity.

    A nanobody-based molecular toolkit provides new mechanistic insight into clathrin-coat initiation

    Linton M Traub
    New intracellularly-expressed llama anti-EPS15 nanobodies reveal that pioneer clathrin-coat components function upstream of AP-2 clathrin adaptor deposition at the plasma membrane.

    A clathrin coat assembly role for the muniscin protein central linker revealed by TALEN-mediated gene editing

    Perunthottathu K Umasankar et al.
    The muniscin protein FCHO1 interacts with, and activates, the adapter protein-2 complex (AP-2) to promote the assembly of clathrin-coated vesicles.

    Single-molecule turnover dynamics of actin and membrane coat proteins in clathrin-mediated endocytosis

    Michael M Lacy et al.
    The main proteins of clathrin-mediated endocytosis bind and unbind rapidly, continuously turning over about five times during the formation of an endocytic vesicle in yeast.

    Single-molecule analysis reveals self assembly and nanoscale segregation of two distinct cavin subcomplexes on caveolae

    Yann Gambin et al.
    New insights into the assembly and membrane interactions of the caveolar coat complex reveal the reversible association/dissociation of distinct subcomplexes onto the membrane, which differs from the assembly/disassembly of clathrin-coated pits.

    Evolutionarily unique mechanistic framework of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in plants

    Madhumitha Narasimhan et al.
    The examination of the ultra-structure and in vivo dynamics of endocytosis in plants reveal plants unique actin-independent, clathrin-mediated endocytosis mechanisms to overcome their unique physiological properties.
