Endo- and exocytosis are processes associated with the transport of nutrients and proteins in to and out of living cells. Upon entering a cell these molecules are collected and encapsulated in vesicles for further transport within the cell. The central protein in the formation process of these vesicles is clathrin. Clathrins consist of three long legs that enable them self-assemble into vesicles and transport cargos within the cell.
