EpsinR D34G + R67L overexpression in COS cells
This pair of mutations abolishes PtdInsP binding
|Myc-EpsinR D34G + R67L with endogenous AP1 and internalised transferrin in COS cells
This mutant has a different distribution to WT epsinR, being found in more peripheral puncta. This shows that the ENTH domain is essential for efficient TGN targeting. The co-localisation images (see below) do not identify the labelled compartment, but there is a redistribution of perinuclear clathrin into these puncta and also a redistribution of TGN46 into these puncta. As seen on the left, AP1 and internalised transferrin do not co-localise.
