Term Information [More information on phagocytosis]

Accession
GO:0006909
Name
phagocytosis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
An endocytosis process that results in the engulfment of external particulate material by phagocytes. The particles are initially contained within phagocytic vacuoles (phagosomes), which then fuse with primary lysosomes to effect digestion of the particles. Source: ISBN:0198506732
