Norwegian research groups have a leading role in research on endocytosis, the internalisation of plasma membrane and extracellular molecules that is crucial for cellular functions. This is illustrated by the fact that in the 2011 "Membranes and Sorting" issue of Current Opinion in Cell Biology (journal impact factor 14.15), two groups from Centre for Cancer Biomedicine and Institute for Cancer Research contribute reviews about endocytosis.
The first review is from Kirsten Sandvig's group and is entitled "Clathrin-independent endocytosis: mechanisms and function". The second review is from Harald Stenmark's group and is entitled "Endocytosis and signaling".
