How does Clathrin-Mediated Endocytosis (CME) become synchronized?

Clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) occurs as periodic traveling waves, being co-ordinated spatially and temporally through the nucleation of actin waves. The link between endocytosis and generation of cortical actin waves may provide deeper insight into how cells maintain the composition and dynamics of the plasma membrane

These findings were […]

What is the role of DAAM1 at actin nodes?

When actin filaments are depolymerized by latrunculin A, DAAM1 becomes free to move, and it associates with the newly formed actin nodes and stabilizes them. At these nodes, DAAM1 organizes short actin filaments, providing the foundation for the regrowth of actin filaments and stress fiber

These […]
