CLASP proteins are recruited to nascent clathrin-coated pits (CCPs) through interactions with AP-2 and clathrin. Although in this pathway cargo recruitment is depicted as occuring after the recruitment of bulk AP-2 and clathrin, a number of studies suggest that they are largely recruited concomitantly (Liu et al, 2010; reviewed in McMahon and Boucrot, 2011). Concurrent interactions with sorting signals in cargo cytoplasmic tails and with clathrin and/or AP-2 ensure that CLASPs and cargo are incorporated into the emerging CCP (Schmid et al, 2006; Edeling et al, 2006; reviewed in Traub, 2009; Traub and Bonifacino, 2013; Kirchausen et al, 2014). In addition, incorporation of CLASPs and cargo may play a role in regulating the timing and dynamics of endocytosis (Loerke et al, 2009; Mettlen et al, 2009; Soohoo et al, 2013; Mettlen et al, 2010; Puthenveedu et al, 2005).
