|Abstract:||Mutations affecting endocytosis, such as those in clathrin and dynamin, unexpectedly cause defects in cytokinesis in a number of organisms. To explore the relationship between endocytosis and cytokinesis, we used the relatively large cells of the transparent zebrafish embryo. Using fluorescent markers for fluid-phase as well as plasma membrane uptake, we demonstrate that cytokinesis involves furrow-specific endocytosis. Clathrin-coated pits are visible near the furrow in ultrathin sections, while immunolabeling demonstrates that clathrin and caveolin are localized to the cleavage furrow. Hence, it is likely that both clathrin- and caveolae-mediated endocytosis occurs at the furrow during cytokinesis. Dynamin II is also localized to the furrow and may mediate furrow-specific endocytosis. Treatment of embryos with chlorpromazine or with methyl-β-cyclodextrin, both of which inhibit endocytosis, prevents the normal completion of cytokinesis. These data suggest that furrow-specific endocytosis is an integral part of cytokinesis. © 2002 Elsevier Science (USA).|
