Am amoeba ingests large food particles by what process?
An amoeba ingests large food particles by the process of endocytosis.
Amoeba ingests food by a process known as phagocytosis. The amoeba modifies its cytoskeleton to 'wrap around' the food particle with its membranes. The membrane then fuses, trapping the food particle in a vacuole inside the cell. The vacuole is then fused with a lysosome and the lysosomal enzymes will break down the food particle.
What Particles that are too large to pass through the cell membrane can get into a cell by process called?
Which of these processes brings in large macromolecules and particles by the formation of a vesicle in the outer membrane?
EXOCYTOSIS-When a large particle must be removed from the cell, the cell uses a different process. In EXOCYTOSIS, vesicles are formed at the endoplasmic reticulum or Golgi complex and carry the particles to the cell membrane. ENDOCYTOSIS-In ENDOCYTOSIS, the cell membrane surrounds a particle and encloses it in a vesicle. This is how large particles, such as other cells, can be brought into a cell. They both require the use of ATP though, like active…
