Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Ascites B IP IH IF
Clathrin-mediated endocytosis is the pathway by which many receptors for nutrients and hormones are internalized to be recycled or down-regulated. During formation of clathrin coated membranes, clathrin co-assembles with heterotetrameric molecules known as assembly polypeptides (APs) or adaptors which form a layer of protein between the clathrin lattice and the membrane. There are two characterized adaptors AP1 and AP2. AP1 is associated with clathrin coated vesicles at the trans-Golgi network and AP2 is associated with the endocytic clathrin coated vesicles at the plasma membrane and has been shown to specifically interact with Src homologous and collagen-like (Shc) and epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor. AP2 is composed of four subunits, two separate 100kD gene products with similar domain structures (alpha and beta adaptin) and a 50 and 17kD subunit. There are two alpha-adaptin genes, alphaA and alphaC which have a tissue specific pattern of expression.
