The DnaJ protein auxilin has been extensively studied in vitro as a cofactor for uncoating clathrin-coated vesicles by the chaperone Hsc70. Recent studies provide the first evidence that auxilin plays this role in vivo, and work on a new mammalian auxilin suggests the protein may have more complex cellular functions.
