  Botany online: Intracellular Movements - Cytosceletons - Clathrin - Coated Vesicles
Clathrin is a protein with an extraordinary structure.
aggregation of the clathrin molecules at the surface of a coated vesicle.
Top left corner (5): insertion of clathrin into the plasmalemma, the prerequisite for the formation of new coated vesicles (according to B. If a vesicle pinches off an endomembrane and fuses with the plasmalemma, is its content exported out of the cell, the process is called exocytosis.

 Receptor Mediated Endocytosis
The coated pit is a specialized region of the membrane that is coated with clathrin (for stability, to aid the transport process).
The assembly of the clathrin molecules on the pit appears to drive the pit to invaginate.
Clathrin coated pits may move in the plane of the membrane, however recent studies show that there is an "organized movement" as if the pits are tethered to cytoskeletal elements.

Clathrin is the major protein of the polyhedral coat of coated pits and vesicles.
Clathrin has a triskeleton structure composed of three heavy chains and three light chains that are the basic subunits of the clathrin coat.
The N-terminal of the heavy chain is known as the globular domain, and is composed of seven repeats which form a beta propeller [1].

This consensus was determined by amino acid sequence alignment of the clathrin-binding regions in the beta subunits of adaptor proteins 1, 2, and 3 (β1, β2, β3A, and β3B), arrestin 3, and amphiphysin I and II This 'clathrin box' is sufficient for binding to the amino terminal domain of the clathrin heavy chain [29].

 CLTC (clathrin heavy polypeptide)
Clathrin is the major protein constituent of the coat that surrounds organelles (cytoplasmic vesicles) to mediate selective protein transport.
Clathrin coats are involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis and intracellular trafficking and recycling of receptors, which accounts for its characteristic punctate cytoplasmic and perinuclear cellular distribution.
Structurally, clathrin is a triskelion (three-legged) shaped protein complex that is composed of a trimer of heavy chains (CLTC) each bound to a single light chain.

Clathrin coat formation on lysosomes is temperature dependent, displays an absolute requirement for ATP, and occurs in both semi-intact cells and onpurified lysosomes, suggesting that clathrin-coated vesicles might regulate retrograde membrane traffic out of the lysosomal compartment.

 Protein Spotlight Issue 42: The Bubble's Bend
Clathrin molecules form a spherical scaffolding and accompany the membrane as it moves inwards, thus forming a spherical shell: the clathrin-coated vesicle.
The C-terminal portion of epsin binds to Eps15, its central portion binds both to clathrin adaptor protein AP2 and clathrin itself, and the ENTH domain binds to phosphatidyl inositols, with a clear preference for phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisposphates or PtdIns(4,5)P2.
As research progresses, this specific domain is showing signs of recruiting and bridging vesicle coat components other than clathrin, and could well have a role not only in forming the container in which cargo is transported but also in transporting the cargo itself.

AP180 is a brain enriched protein essential for the recycling of synaptic vesicles after exocytosis and CALM is a ubiquitous homologue.
The adaptor binding is discussed further in other parts of these Web pages but it is not as strong as the clathrin binding, and the dominant phenotype of overexpression is a disruption of clathrin-assembly.

 Sharing Responsibility for Clathrin Coat Assembly
Clathrin molecules—three-pronged pinwheel-shaped proteins—form an elaborate lattice coat around the vesicles, which ultimately bud off from the membrane and transport their cargo to their cellular destination.
In a new study, Eva Schmid, Marijn Ford, McMahon, and colleagues use an impressive array of tools—biophysical, biochemical, structural, and cell biological—to shed light on the network dynamics of this “endocytic interactome.” APs orchestrate the process of cargo recruitment and assembly of the nascent vesicle and are the first hub of the endocytic network.

 Clathrin-mediated endocytosis: Coated vesicle assembly
Clathrin can be recruited to membranes by a variety of proteins including AP180, epsin, amphiphysin and adaptors.
AP180 is illustrated here because this is a very efficient recruitment protein that binds to PiP2 in the plasma membrane and also induces the polymerisation of clathrin into a lattice (see AP180 pages).
As illustrated for epsin, this protein dips into the membrane and displaces lipids in one leaflet and also binds to clathrin (see Epsin pages).
