In mediating endocytosis of extracellular macromolecules; the major mechanism in which cells ingest nutrients, degrade hormones and maintain the protein and lipid compositions of their organelle membrane, the cell surface receptors encounter 'coated pits', migrate continuously from one organelle to another, deliver the 'cargo' and often recycle back to the cell surface. This article is an attempt to give an account of the recent advances in our understanding of the molecular events involved in the 'round trip itinerary' of cell surface receptors.
