Term Information [More information on macropinocytic cup]

Accession
GO:0070685
Name
macropinocytic cup
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
crown
Definition
A cell projection that forms at the site of macropinocytosis, a form of endocytosis that results in the uptake of relatively large amounts of extracellular fluid. The macropinocytic cup membrane selectively excludes certain proteins, such as H36 or PM4C4 in Dictyostelium, and the underlying cytoskeleton is enriched in F-actin and coronin.
