Term Information [More information on receptor-mediated endocytosis]

Accession
GO:0006898
Name
receptor-mediated endocytosis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
receptor mediated endocytosis
Definition
An endocytosis process in which cell surface receptors ensure specificity of transport. A specific receptor on the cell surface binds tightly to the extracellular macromolecule (the ligand) that it recognizes; the plasma-membrane region containing the receptor-ligand complex then undergoes endocytosis, forming a transport vesicle containing the receptor-ligand complex and excluding most other plasma-membrane proteins. Receptor-mediated endocytosis generally occurs via clathrin-coated pits and vesicles. Source: ISBN:0716731363, GOC:mah
