Membrane dynamics in phagocytosis

Membrane dynamics in phagocytosis

Seminars in Immunology 13(6): 357-364

Engulfment of particles by phagocytes involves remodeling of the plasma membrane. We review recent work that suggests that focal exocytosis of endomembranes plays an important role in pseudopod extension during phagocytosis.
