The TPLATE complex (TPC) is a key endocytic adaptor protein complex in plants. TPC contains six evolutionary conserved subunits and two plant specific subunits, AtEH1/Pan1 and AtEH2/Pan1, which are not associated with the hexameric subcomplex in the cytoplasm. To investigate the dynamic assembly of the octameric TPC at the plasma membrane (PM), we performed state-of-the-art dual-color live cell imaging at physiological and a lowered temperature. Our data show that lowering the temperature slows down endocytosis and thereby enhances the temporal resolution of the differential recruitment of endocytic components. Under both normal and lowered temperature conditions, the core TPC subunit TPLATE, and the AtEH/Pan1 proteins, exhibited simultaneous recruitment at the PM. These results, together with our co-localization analysis of different TPC subunits, allow us to conclude that in plant cells, TPC is not recruited to the PM sequentially but as an octameric complex.
