Term Information

Accession
GO:0006909
Name
phagocytosis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
A vesicle-mediated transport process that results in the engulfment of external particulate material by phagocytes and their delivery to the lysosome. The particles are initially contained within phagocytic vacuoles (phagosomes), which then fuse with primary lysosomes to effect digestion of the particles. Source: ISBN:0198506732
