OTR has been observed to form a relatively stable [beta]-arrestin complex (39), which is indicative that OTR belongs to the class B type of GPCRs that tend to internalize with the [beta]-arrestin into endosomes and are only poorly dephosphorylated and retargeted to the cell surface (36,40).
Upon uptake into an APC, these antigens are processed within endosomes and lysosomes by acidic proteases called cathepsins.
Cleavage of the HA0 protein of influenza viruses results in an essential confonnational change in the HA protein, which enables the envelope of the endocytosed virus to fuse with the membrane of endosomes, releasing nucleocapsids into the cytoplasmic compartment (5,13).
The virus, which is absorbed into vesicles by receptor-mediated endocytosis, begins to uncoat as these vesicles fuse into low-pH endosomes.
Organelles called endosomes then split off from these buds.
Reversible chemical masking of the polymers so that membrane-lytic activity is revealed only in the acidic environment of endosomes, and
5 nm thin type, such as the membranes of the ER and mitochondria, and the 10 nm thick type, such as the membranes of lysosomes, endosomes, and transGolgi.
Regulation of epidermal growth factor receptor down-regulation by UBPY-mediated deubiquitination at endosomes.
Two-pore channels (TPCs) are cation-selective intracellular ion channels, expressed mostly in the endosomal system (TPC1) and on late endosomes and lysosomes (TPC2).
Serum transferrin also stimulates cell proliferation TFRC Cellular uptake of iron occurs by endocytosis of ligand-occupied transferrin receptor into endosomes.
RNAi cell arrays, super-resolution STED imaging and endosomal proteomics will be used to investigate integrin signaling in endosomes.
intetinalis TLRs fail to localize specifically to plasma membranes or endosomes, possibly acting in a more general pattern.
