Term Information [More information on positive regulation of pinocytosis]

Accession
GO:0048549
Name
positive regulation of pinocytosis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
up regulation of pinocytosis, up-regulation of pinocytosis, upregulation of pinocytosis, activation of pinocytosis, stimulation of pinocytosis
Definition
Any process that activates, maintains or increases the rate of pinocytosis. Pinocytosis is the process in which cells take in liquid material from their external environment; literally 'cell drinking'. Liquid is enclosed in vesicles, formed by invagination of the plasma membrane. These vesicles then move into the cell and pass their contents to endosomes. Source: GOC:go_curators
