The recent technological advance of using fluorescent proteins to image endocytic protein traffic has resulted in a greater understanding of this dynamic process. However, most of the main concepts for how clathrin-mediated endocytosis functions were formulated long before intrinsically fluorescent proteins were available. These important conceptual breakthroughs came from the clever interpretation of simple observations.
