Joint Materials/Solid Mechanics Seminar Series: “Elucidating the Mechanics of Clathrin-Mediated Endocytosis”

Monday, September 15, 2014 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) is a key metabolic pathway that plays a central role in the delivery of nutrients and drug carriers into cells. In this work, we model the interactions of lipid membranes with different types of protein scaffolds and active forces to provide mechanistic insights into CME, especially, in the high-tension regime. To this end, we develop and employ an extended theoretical framework of lipid membranes that entertains spatial heterogeneity and local anisotropy that could arise from membrane-protein interactions.
