Activation of Arp2/3 by WASp Is Essential for the Endocytosis of Delta Only during Cytokinesis in Drosophila: Cell Reports
In summary, we propose a model whereby the activity of WASp-Arp2/3 generally increases the efficiency of endocytosis and becomes specifically required only during cytokinesis, when Dl activates Notch to mediate intra-lineage decisions. This model may be general and apply to mammalian tissues where Notch is known to regulate intra-lineage decisions (Dong et al., 2012
, Pardo-Saganta et al., 2015
). N-WASp, the ubiquitously expressed WASp in mammals, is required for the maintenance of skin progenitor cells and hair follicle cycling in the mouse (Lyubimova et al., 2010
), and Notch plays a critical role in the self-renewal of skin stem cells (Blanpain et al., 2006
, Martincorena et al., 2015
). Whether Notch signaling is regulated by N-WASp in this context remains to be examined.

WIP/ITSN1 complex is involved in cellular vesicle trafficking and formation of filopodia-like protrusions - ScienceDirect
Could these be TNTs?

WIP (WASP interacting protein) together with N-WASP (neural Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein) regulates actin polymerization that is crucial for invadopodia and filopodia formation. Recently, we reported the WIP interaction with ITSN1 which is highly implicated in endo-/exocytosis, apoptosis, mitogenic signaling and cytoskeleton rearrangements. Here we demonstrate that the WIP/ITSN1 complex is involved in the transferrin receptor recycling and partially co-localizes with a marker of the fast recycling endosomes, RAB4. Moreover, ITSN1 recruits WIP to RAB4-positive vesicles upon overexpression. Our data indicate that WIP enhances the interaction of N-WASP with ITSN1 and promotes ITSN1/β-actin association. Moreover, the WIP/ITSN1-L complex facilitates formation of filopodia-like protrusions in MCF-7 cells. Thus, WIP/ITSN1 complex is involved in the cellular vesicle trafficking and actin-dependent membrane processes.

WASP 3d printed house
Crane WASP The Infinity 3d printer is a modular collaborative 3D printing system. It reinterprets the classic building cranes from a digital manufacturing point of view. It is composed of a main printer unit that can be assembled in different configurations depending on the printing area and therefore on the dimensions of the architectural structure to be calculated in 3d.
