Background: Vesiculation of tubular recycling endosomes is essential for the recycling of receptors and lipids to the plasma membrane. Results: A novel vesiculation assay was used to demonstrate a role for endocytic regulatory proteins in vesiculation. Conclusion: EHD family proteins play significant roles in both the vesiculation and generation of tubular recycling endosomes. Significance: This provides the first direct evidence of differential EHD function in vesiculation and tubulation.
