On the short time scale, trafficking of endocytic vesicles contributes to signal propagation from the surface to distant targets, with bi-directional communication between signalling and trafficking. Mathematical modelling helps combine the mechanistic, molecular knowledge with rigorous analysis of the complex output dynamics of endocytosis in time and space. Simulations reveal novel roles for endocytosis, including the control of cell polarity, enhancing the spatial signal propagation, and controlling the signal magnitudes, kinetics, and synchronization with stimulus dynamics.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2009 Elsevier||Keywords:||Endocytosis; Mathematical modelling; Spatial gradients; Spatiotemporal dynamics; Signal transduction||DOI:||10.1016/j.molonc.2009.05.009||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
