News tips from the Journal of Neuroscience

... Alexander Sorkin Sorkin et al. set out to track endocytosis of the dopamine transporter (DAT) by creating a mutant transporter with a hemagglutinin (HA) epitope-tag in the large extracellular loop. The authors then followed uptake with an HA antibody in a so-called antibody feeding assay. Although DAT undergo...
