    ..The FCHo F-BAR membrane-bending activity was required, leading to the proposal that FCHo1/2 sculpt the initial bud site and recruit the clathrin machinery for CCV formation. ..

    ..The lumen of rough endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi complex, endosomes, and lysosomes were negative. The specific localization of E1 to distinct subcellular organelles suggests that E1 may play multiple physiological roles within the cell. ..

    ..The 3495-bp cDNA encodes 1058 amino acids (aa), and shares extensive homology with the human E1 enzyme at both the nucleotide and aa sequence levels. ..
