Background Information

AP2A1 encodes adaptor protein complex 2 (AP-2) subunit alpha-1, which is a 100 kDa coated vesicle protein. Adaptor protein (AP) complexes are cytosolic heterotetramers that mediate the sorting of membrane proteins in the secretory and endocytic pathways. AP complexes are involved in the formation of clathrin-coated vesicles (CCVs) by recruiting the scaffold protein, clathrin. AP complexes also play a pivotal role in the cargo selection by recognizing the sorting signals within the cytoplasmic tail of integral membrane proteins. AP-2 is involved in clathrin-dependent endocytosis.
