clathrin-mediated endocytosis plant cell biology protein complex purification TPLATE complex
We recently identified the TPLATE complex as an essential endocytic complex driving plant clathrin-mediated endocytosis in plants alongside the evolutionary conserved AP-2 complex. Aim of this project is to link membrane proteins to either the TPLATE or the AP-2 complex and to further unravel the function of the TPLATE complex. This will be achieved using proximity biotinylation and conditional delocalization.
