A new study by Yao et al. in the current issue of Cell proposes that a novel vesicular protein, dubbed Flower, regulates endocytosis by controlling presynaptic Ca2+ levels. This finding is intriguing not only for its implications for vesicle cycling, but also for the multitude of Ca2+-dependent processes at play in presynaptic nerve terminals.
