Implication of Yeast Dynamin-Related Protein Vps1 in Endocytosis and Organelle Fission
dynamin, Vps1, endocytosis, Golgi, scission
Dynamin is a multi-domain GTPase found in mammals, which plays an imperative role in fission events at the plasma membrane during endocytosis and membrane-bound internal organelles, including the Golgi membrane (Ramachandran 2011). It has been shown that dynamin and its yeast counterpart, vacuolar protein sorting 1 (Vps1), are highly related proteins sharing similar sequence and function. Through this in-depth review of the literature, we summarize main functions of the dynamic Vps1 protein at diverse locations within the cell.
