This model describes a core process during endocytosis. Intracellular vesicles called early endosomes contain the endocytosed cargo, e.g. signaling components like growth factors and RTKs, pathogens like viruses and nutrients like iron in transferrin. Early endosomes form an interacting pool of thousands of vesicles and jointly constitute the sorting and transport machinery in the endocytic pathway. Together with the cargo, membrane components travel to other compartments of the pathway which
