Clathrin, light chain B

Clathrin is a large, soluble protein composed of heavy and light chains. It functions as the main structural component of the lattice-type cytoplasmic face of coated pits and vesicles which entrap specific macromolecules during receptor-mediated endocytosis. This gene encodes one of two clathrin light chain proteins which are believed to function as regulatory elements. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

Regulation of ceramide biosynthesis by TOR complex 2.
Powers et al., Davis, United States. In Cell Metab, 2008
