EpsinR D342R + D422R overexpression in COS cells

Mutation of these two residues affects the interaction of EpsinR with clathrin.
The phenotype is less severe than the lipid binding mutant (D34G + R67L)
pointing again to the importance of the ENTH domain is targeting epsinR.
In this mutant there is better overlap with GGAs which may be due to
less competition with clathrin for binding.
