Intracellular Traffic of Organelles

Philosophical question for all visitors


As a biochemist, I can think of many ways the activity of a receptor can be regulated - kinetic, metabolic etc.  In terms of the energy consumption endocytosis of the receptor seems to be the most expensive.  What are the advantage of this mode of regulation which would have allowed this mechanism to survive over others during evolution?
