After nucleation of the clusters within the membrane, the CCP will deform into a clathrin-coated vesicle (CCV).
The T cell receptor (TCR) stimulation promotes CTLA-4 trafficking from vesicular compartments to the cell membrane, however, once it is already in the membrane, this receptor is continuously endocytosed via clathrin-coated vesicles. After endocytosis, some CTLA-4 molecules are recycled to the cell membrane while others are rapidly degraded in lysosomal compartments (16,17).
Both the constitutive internalization and the internalization of activated PAR1 proceed through clathrin-coated vesicles [13-15].
