Prof. Satyajit Mayor’s team has shown how cells regulate this membrane tension using a novel endocytic pathway called the CLIC/GEEC or CG pathway. Study done by lead author Joseph Jose Thottacherry shows that the CG endocytosis is intimately connected to membrane tension by sensing and responding to changes in membrane tension.
