Term Detail
GO term:early endosome
GO id:GO:0005769
Definition:A membrane-bounded organelle that receives incoming material from primary endocytic vesicles that have been generated by clathrin-dependent and clathrin-independent endocytosis; vesicles fuse with the early endosome to deliver cargo for sorting into recycling or degradation pathways.
Number of paths to term: 16
