Term Name: positive regulation of signal transduction by receptor internalization Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • positive regulation of signaling pathway by receptor endocytosis
Definition: Any process in which the internalization of a signaling receptor activates or increases the frequency, rate or extent of signal transduction. Receptor internalization can enhance signaling by concentrating signaling molecules in one location, or by moving a ligand-activated receptor to the location of downstream signaling proteins. Endosomes for example can serve as important intracellular signaling platforms. (2)
