Signaling is regulated by endocytosis at multiple levels along endocytic routes. Endocytic control of signaling starts already at the plasma membrane, where cells employ different mechanisms to finely tune the type and strength of signals emanating from the cell surface. Here, we will review some of the most recently described endocytic mechanisms controlling signaling at the plasma membrane, through the regulation of internalization dynamics and through the integration of different internalization pathways triggered by canonical chemical stimuli or physical forces.
