Role of clathrin-coated plaques in regulating cell migration
Clathrin is a unique scaffold protein, which forms polyhedral cages at the plasma membrane assembling into flat and curved lattices. The function of the curved clathrin-coated pits in forming endocytic structures is well studied. However, the functions of the large flat clathrin arrays (a.k.a. clathrin-coated plaques) remain elusive. We have recently identified the origin and started to elucidate the function of plaques during cell migration. We propose that clathrin-coated plaques may act...
My colleagues and I at Michigan State University are looking to hire up to two postdoctoral research associates to begin sometime this summer. We are a large, collaborative group with a primary focus on incorporating core ideas and scientific practices in assessment and instruction.
