Write a note on endocytosis.
The ingestion of materials by the cells through the plasma membrane is called endocytosis. It includes three processes—that is,
(a) phagocytosis (cell eating),
(b) photocytosis (cell drinking), and
(c) receptor-mediated endocytosis.
All of these processes require energy, so these may be considered as different forms of active transport.
