1 Transport of macromolecules and particles across a membrane is mediated through a distinct process called endocytosis . Endocytosis Phagocytosis (a constitutive process for uptaking solid particles) Pinocytosis (a constitutive process for uptaking solutions) Clathrin-dependent endocytosis (via clathrin coated pits) Caveolin-dependent endocytosis (via caveolin coated pits called caveolae) Others Transmembrane transport of macromolecules and nanoparticles Doherty and McMahon, Annu. Rev. Biochem. 2009. 78:857–902 (Phagocytosis) (Clathrin-dependent endocytosis)
