Membrane transport in the endocytic pathway

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1995 Aug;7(4):552-63. doi: 10.1016/0955-0674(95)80013-1.


Despite controversies and debates, some fundamental properties of endosomes become apparent when comparing results from in vivo and in vitro strategies used to study endosomal membrane traffic. In addition, recent studies are starting to unravel the complex organization of early endosomes, in particular along the route followed by recycling receptors.
