Dynamin and endocytosis inhibitors

An introduction to dynamin and endocytosis with a simple reference guide of inhibitors for your research.

Dynamin is a key GTPase involved in various forms of endocytosis and is comprised of 3 major isoforms, all of which have four main functional domains.

In addition to being a key component of endocytosis, dynamin participates in cell cycle progression and has also been shown to have critical roles in centrosome cohesion and cytokinesis.

Dynamin inhibitors inhibit different domains of dynamin, leading to subsequent inhibition of endocytosis. Consequently, the dynamin inhibitors have wide-spread application allowing investigation of cell signalling pathways, the cell cycle and cellular division, in addition to other medical conditions such as cancer, neurological conditions and infectious diseases such as botulism and HIV.
