Endocytic Pathways

Post by mcdull1016 » Fri Aug 05, 2005 1:23 am

I am asked to compare and contrast the endocytic pathway for internalizing LDL and the endocytic pathway that delievers transferrin-bound iron to cells. How can i do it?

i know the two involve different enzymes and receptors. What are the other main differences?

Thanks in advance!! XD

How is the endocytosis mediated, are they both clathrine-coated for example. Is the receptor re-used, At what pH is the ligand separated from its receptor and so on (there are not many differences)
