Endocytosis - @ a glance

Endocytosis is a physiological process which involves the uptake and recycling of extracellular material which thereby regulates how cells interact with the surrounding environment. Almost all cells utilise endocytosis, which can be categorised primarily into two different mechanisms: clathrin-mediated endocytosis and clathrin-independent endocytosis.

In addition to being an essential physiological process, endocytosis is often disrupted in many human diseases and is often manipulated and utilised by pathogens and toxins such to gain entry into cells. This notably includes the HIV virus and the Botulinum toxins.

By modulating endocytosis researchers can further explore the processes and mechanisms of endocytosis in addition to investigating its important roles in disease and pathophysiological processes.
