Vol. 190, Issue 4 - toc1

An artistically rendered image showing the spatial separation of endocytic pathways in a migrating fibroblast. Clathrin-coated vesicles (blue) are nonpolarized, while clathrin-independent carriers (red) localize to the leading edge and caveolae (green) form at the rear of the cell. Howes et al. reveal that clathrin-independent internalization is the predominant endocytic pathway in fibroblasts.
