Endocytosis includes a number of processes by which cells internalize segments of their plasma membrane, enclosing a wide variety of material from outside the cell. Endocytosis can contribute to uptake of nutrients, regulation of signaling molecules, control of osmotic pressure, and function of synapses. The actin cytoskeleton plays an essential role in several of these processes. Actin assembly can create protrusions that encompass extracellular materials. Actin can also support the processes… CONTINUE READING
