The extent to which the many different pathways of endocytosis share underlying molecular mechanisms is currently unknown. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Yarar et al. (2007) report that SNX9, a protein that binds phosphatidylinositides, dynamin, and N-WASP, coordinates actin assembly with several distinct endocytic processes.
