The endocytosis of Notch ligands


is required for notch activation

Cell 124,897

Ligand-engaged and unliganded Notch

Cell 124,897,2006

Creation of asymmetry in pIIa and pIIb cells

1. Notch endocytosis
(Numb and -adaptin)
2. Sanpodo (required for Notch
signaling) endocytosis
3. Delta internalization to
Rab11 (+) recycling endosome
and recycle to plasma membrane

Rab11 based mechanism is suppressed
