See Supplementary Info. pH pulsing assay. pH pulsing assay was adapted for Nikon TE 2000 TIRF microscope (for the specifics on the microscope, see microscope section in S.I.) from a similar assay as described previously4. Briefly, FR-AGS cells had been plated on custom-designed coverslip bottom dishes and had been transfected with SecGFP-GPI and X-FP constructs 124 h just before the assay. The dishes have been then fitted using a custom-designed holder to spot inlet and outlet tubing. Tubing from a pH 7.4 (HEPES) and pH 5.5 (MES) buffers kept within a water bath at 38 went by means of a peristaltic flow controller (Bioscience Tools) in to the cell chamber. The temperature of the cells within the dish was maintained at 30 by preserving the buffers, the objective plus the microscope (applying a chamber) at appropriately higher temperatures. Imaging at 30 slows the endocytic course of action to match the time resolutionFig. 7 PICK1 is involved in CG endocytosis and is negatively regulated by ARF1. a Schematic depicts domain organisation of PICK1. b Histograms (best) show quantification of fluid-phase and TfR uptake in AGS cells treated with DMSO alone (0 ) or the indicated concentrations of PICK1 inhibitor, FSC231, normalised to DMSO-treated controls, together with its representative photos (below). Data have been pooled from two independent experiments with the cell numbers shown under the graph. c Box plot (leading) shows the amount of endosomes per cells for FR-GPI (Cy3-Mov18), fluid phase and TfR in scrambled (PIGPZ) and PICK1 shRNA-infected AGS cells when pulsed for 2 min as well as representative photos (bottom). Information are pooled from two independent experiments and the quantity of cells indicated below the graph. d Histogram (left) shows normalised PICK1 levels measured by immunostaining in PICK1 shRNA-infected AGS cells in conjunction with representative images (correct). Data were pooled from two independent experiments with all the cell numbers indicated inside the figure except for PIGPZ (292). e Box plot (top) shows the residence time of TagRFPt-PICK1 spots at the TIRF plane (see Techniques), averaged in a person cell expressing either GFP, GFP-ARF1 WT, GFP-ARF1 DN or HA-ARF1 DA. The information are pooled from two independent experiments with cell number indicated below the graph. f The graph shows the typical normalised fluorescence intensity vs. time trace for the recruitment of TagRFPt-PICK1 to the forming SecGFP-GPI endocytic web sites and its corresponding random intensity trace (n, Table 1). The random traces had been derived from randomly assigned spots from the similar radius because the endocytic regions, as detailed in S.I. Endocytic distribution at every single time point was when compared with the random distribution by Mann hitney U test plus the log10 (p) [log10 (0.05) is -1.three and log10 (0.001) is -2.5] is plotted under.
