Nanoparticles are promising tools for biomedicine. Many nanoparticles are internalized to function. Clathrin-mediated endocytosis is one of the most important mechanisms for nanoparticle internalization. However, the regulatory mechanism of clathrin-mediated nanoparticle endocytosis is still unclear. Here, we report that the adapter protein HIP-55 regulates clathrin-mediated nanoparticle endocytosis. CdSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs), a typical nanoparticle, enter cells through the HIP-55-dependent clathrin endocytosis pathway. Both pharmacological inhibitor and genetic intervention demonstrate that QDs enter cells through clathrin-mediated endocytosis. HIP-55 can interact with clathrin and promote clathrin-mediated QDs endocytosis. Furthermore, HIP-55 ΔADF which is defective in F-actin binding fails to promote QDs endocytosis, indicating HIP-55 promotes clathrin-mediated QDs endocytosis depending on interaction with F-actin. In vivo, HIP-55 knockout also inhibits endocytosis of QDs. These findings reveal that HIP-55 acts as an intrinsic regulator for clathrin-mediated nanoparticle endocytosis, providing new insight into the nanoparticle internalization and a new strategy for nanodrug enrichment in target cells.
