GO:0006909 phagocytosis

Term Information

ID GO:0006909
Name phagocytosis
Ontology Biological Process
Definition An endocytosis process that results in the engulfment of external particulate material by phagocytes. The particles are initially contained within phagocytic vacuoles (phagosomes), which then fuse with primary lysosomes to effect digestion of the particles.
