Gangliosides, glycosphingolipids containing sialic acid moieties, are well known mediators of transmembrane signaling and endocytosis at the plasma membrane. However, little is known about their precise regulatory role at the cell periphery for intracellular sorting of extracellular cargo. Here we inspected published scientific literature for two types of… CONTINUE READING
