Term Information [More information on phagocytosis, engulfment]

Accession
GO:0006911
Name
phagocytosis, engulfment
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
phagosome biosynthesis, phagosome formation
Definition
The internalization of bacteria, immune complexes and other particulate matter or of an apoptotic cell by phagocytosis, including the membrane and cytoskeletal processes required, which involves one of three mechanisms: zippering of pseudopods around a target via repeated receptor-ligand interactions, sinking of the target directly into plasma membrane of the phagocytosing cell, or induced uptake via an enhanced membrane ruffling of the phagocytosing cell similar to macropinocytosis.
