Clathrin function in yeast endocytosis.

Author information

Abstract

The process of endocytosis is a complex series of events involving the coordinated activity of many proteins. In animal cells, clathrin plays a vital role in the invagination of the plasma membrane leading to formation of vesicles during endocytosis. The study of endocytosis in yeast cells has been hindered by a debate about the role of clathrin in early internalization steps. This review summarizes the evidence for and against clathrin's involvement in internalization from the yeast plasma membrane.
