(CIT): Cells communicate with their environment and with other cells through their plasma membranes (PM). The major selective pathway for internalization from the plasma membrane is clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME), which involves the assembly of clathrin coated pits (CCPs) that package cargo molecules, invaginate and pinch off into the cytosol forming clathrin coated vesicles (CCVs). CME governs key cellular processes, including uptake of nutrients, regulation of surface signaling receptors, recycling of synaptic vesicles, and remodeling of PM transporters to control serum homeostasis. Given its importance to cell and organismal physiology, CME is tightly regulated. We have used quantitative total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy to study CCP dynamics in living cells and identified an endocytosis "checkpoint" that is sensitive to cargo content and regulated by the GTPase dynamin. Dynamin also catalyzes the membrane fission event leading to CCV formation. We have reconstituted dynamin-catalyzed vesicle formation from fluid supported bilayers with excess membrane reservoir (SUPER) templates to gain insight into the mechanisms governing membrane fission. Further insights come from structural studies on the dynamin GTPase domain. Together, these in vivo and in vitro approaches provide evidence that dynamin plays a dual role in CME, functioning at early stages to regulate CCV formation and at later stages to directly mediate membrane fission.
