Resource summary

Membrane Transport
  1. Endocytosis
    1. fluidity of membrane
      1. allows materials to be taken in
        1. allows structures surrounded by membrane to change shape and structure
        2. vesicles pinched off from membranes
          1. done by proteins in membrane using ATP
            1. forms inside plasma membrane
              1. carries materials from outside
              2. contents
                1. water
                  1. solutes
                    1. molecules too large to pass through membrane
                      1. sometimes large undigested food particles
                        1. sometimes pathogens to kill
                      2. Vesicle movement in cells
                        1. vesicle
                          1. small sac of membrane with drop of fluid inside
                            1. spherical
                              1. present in eukaryotic cells usually
                                1. called contractile vacuole
