Ligands and receptors that mediate cell-cell interactions during development are removed from the cell surface by endocytosis. Subsequently, many of these internalized proteins are detected in multivesicular bodies (MVBs). Recent work in different organisms has elucidated some aspects of MVB biogenesis and trafficking. This review discusses some intriguing links between these findings, the sorting of proteins in endocytic trafficking, and the regulation of signaling pathways in Drosophila.
