Process by cell membrane that take in fluids and dissolve substances


Expert Answer

Step 1

The movements of ions and molecules in and across the cell membrane are regulated by a set of transport mechanisms that are collectively termed as membrane transport mechanisms. In endocytosis process, molecules enter the cells within the vesicles that folds inward from the plasma membrane. There are three types of endocytosis; they are receptor-mediated endocytosis phagocytosis, and pinocytosis.

Step 2

Pinocytosis is the process by which cell membrane takes in fluids and dissolve substances. This process internalizes the dissolved solutes in a cell. The process occur when multiple, small regions of the plasma ...
