Mechanisms and functions of endocytosis

J Cell Biol. 2008 Jan 14;180(1):7-11. doi: 10.1083/jcb.200711073.


A recent EMBO-FEBS workshop entitled Endocytic Systems: Mechanism and Function, organized by Howard Riezman in Villars-sur-Ollon (Switzerland), showcased the multifaceted approaches and model systems used to study endocytosis. The meeting revealed how endocytosis controls multiple aspects of biology, ranging from development to immunity and neurotransmission.
