Liposomes have been utilized for variety of membrane transport studies including clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Here we introduce clathrin-coated structures that are generated on large unilamellar liposomes by incubating with clathrin coat proteins. Large unilamellar liposomes are also used to reconstitute vesicle formation in a cell-free system, and the vesicle formation can be quantified by using dynamic light scattering (DLS). Furthermore, phagocytosis assay using liposome-conjugated styrene beads is demonstrated.
