T cell signaling is characterized by the diverse enrichment of receptors and signaling intermediates at particular subcellular regions of the T cell at specific times, resulting in complex spatiotemporal signaling distributions. These signaling distributions control the flow of information through the T cell signaling network and thus govern the efficiency of cellular activation. Here we discuss principal cellular structures driving the organization of T cell signaling including membrane topology, vesicular trafficking, cytoskeletal structures and protein complexes.
