Cell-cell signalling is an essential process in the formation of multicellular organisms. Notch is the receptor of an evolutionarily conserved signalling pathway regulating numerous developmental decisions. Indeed, its misregulation is linked to multiple developmental and physiological disorders. Notch and its ligands are distributed widely throughout development, yet Notch activity is highly controlled and restricted in time and space. Recent advances have highlighted that endocytosis followed by endosomal sorting of both the Notch receptor and its ligands is an essential mechanism by which Notch-mediated signalling is developmentally controlled.
