endosome


Also found in: Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

en·do·some

(en'dō-sōm),
A more or less central body in the vesicular nucleus of certain Feulgen-negative (DNA-) protozoa (for example, trypanosomes, parasitic amebae, and phytoflagellates), with the chromatin (DNA+) lying between the nuclear membrane and the endosome. Compare: nucleolus.
[endo- + G. sōma, body]

endosome

/en·do·some/ (en´do-sōm)
1. in endocytosis, a vesicle that has lost its coat of clathrin.
2. a nucleolus-like, intranuclear, RNA-containing organelle of certain flagellate protozoa that persists during mitosis.

intracellular vesicles formed from the cell membrane which are involved in intracellular transport.

Although free RNA released from dead cells is rapidly degraded by nucleases, RNA complexed with nuclear proteins such as Sm/RNP is relatively resistant to nucleases and is able to interact with TLR7 in endosomes after endocytosis.
On the other hand, exosomes are produced by a more complex inward budding of endosomes (1).
After entering from the endosome to cytoplasm, iron can be stored within ferritin or it can be used for cellular reactions.
DMT1, the only known Fe transporter in the intestine, which is highly conserved across the species, is also expressed in the endosomes of all cells.
The toxin is internalized by receptor-mediated endocytosis where it resides in an endosome.
Role of Rab7/Ypt7 in Organizing Membrane Trafficking At the Late Endosome
1 bypasses a block in endosome maturation in Caenorhabditis elegans.
The leuconoid condition results from the additional folding of the endosome and thickening of the cortex, reflecting the growth of the mesohyl.
Additionally, mTOR controls the expression of the TCR-associated signaling protein CD4, and through increased expression of the endosome recycling regulator HRES-1/ Rab4, mTOR mediates enhanced [Ca.
Once bound, the PA becomes activated on the cell surface and forms an indentation called an endosome that gets swallowed by the cell.
CD44 and CD98 are normally trafficked via a clathrin independent endocytosis pathway, whereby rather than being sorted into early endosomal antigen 1 (EEA1) positive endosome, they enter the tubular recycling endosomes directly.
