Endocytic clathrin-coated vesicle (CCV) formation is a complex process involving a large number of proteins and lipids. The minimum machinery and the hierarchy of the events involved in CCV formation have yet to be defined. Here we describe an in vitro assay for CCV formation from highly purified rat liver plasma membranes. This rapid and easy assay can be used to quantitatively evaluate the different protein requirements for different endocytic receptors.
