Abstract

Endosomes are a heterogeneous population of endocytic vacuoles through which molecules internalized during pinocytosis pass en route to lysosomes. In addition to this transport function, recent studies indicate that these organelles also act as clearing houses for incoming ligands, fluid components and receptors.
