The role of intracellular membrane trafficking in cellular morphogenesis is still unclear. We propose here a prominent function of a recently identified compartment that we propose to call the cell outgrowth secretory endosome (COSE), the exocytosis of which is controlled by the v-SNARE TIVAMP and by cell-cell adhesion.
