    A mechanism for exocytotic arrest by the Complexin C-terminus

    Mazen Makke et al.
    The far C-terminal domain of CpxII interferes with SNARE assembly and thereby arrests tonic exocytosis.

    Fusion pore regulation by cAMP/Epac2 controls cargo release during insulin exocytosis

    Alenka Guček et al.
    Live cell imaging shows that the cAMP-sensor Epac2, a target of major antidiabetic drugs, is central to fusion pore control during insulin granule exocytosis.

    Direct comparison of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in budding and fission yeast reveals conserved and evolvable features

    Yidi Sun et al.
    Quantitative comparison of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in budding and fission yeast identified conserved mechanisms and species-specific adaptations with broad implications that extend from yeast to humans.

    Massive palmitoylation-dependent endocytosis during reoxygenation of anoxic cardiac muscle

    Mei-Jung Lin et al.
    Reoxygenation of anoxic cardiac tissue promotes massive endocytosis that is triggered by release of coenzymeA from mitochondria, followed by palmitoylation of membrane proteins, sarcolemma vesiculation, and transfer of sarolemma vesicles to large endosomes and vacuoles.

    Requirement of Smurf-mediated endocytosis of Patched1 in sonic hedgehog signal reception

    Shen Yue et al.
    Smurf1 and Smurf2 have essential functions in the mammalian Shh signaling pathway, binding to and ubiquitylating Patched1, leading to its endocytosis and subsequent degradation in lysosomes.

    Massive endocytosis triggered by surface membrane palmitoylation under mitochondrial control in BHK fibroblasts

    Donald W Hilgemann et al.
    Mitochondria can trigger massive endocytosis by releasing coenzyme A into the cytoplasm and thereby promoting the addition of fatty acids to surface membrane proteins.

    Phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate optical uncaging potentiates exocytosis

    Alexander M Walter et al.
    Increasing PI(4,5)P2 on a sub-second timescale using a novel, membrane-permeant UV activatable PI(4,5)P2 molecule augments exocytosis which requires the PI(4,5)P2 interacting exocytotic proteins Munc13-2 and synaptotagmin-1.

    A dynamin 1-, dynamin 3- and clathrin-independent pathway of synaptic vesicle recycling mediated by bulk endocytosis

    Yumei Wu et al.
    Analysis of neurons that lack the two neuronal dynamins, dynamin 1 and 3, demonstrates a pathway of synaptic vesicle reformation that does not require these two dynamins or clathrin-dependent budding.
