Transport of small molecules across membrane using caveolae rather than coated vesicles.


Potocytosis is a type of receptor-mediated endocytosis in which small molecules are transported across the plasma membrane of a cell. The molecules are transported by caveolae (rather than clathrin-coated vesicles) and are deposited directly into the cytosol. Like other types of receptor-mediated endocytosis, potocytosis typically begins when an e...
