...pinocytosis The endocytotic uptake of fluid-filled vesicles (pinocytotic vesicles, pinosomes), usually less than 150 nm diameter. Micropinocytosis (vesicles of ~70 nm) is distinct from macropinocytosis , being energy independent and involving receptor–ligand clustering on the cell surface and interaction with cytoplasmic clathrin...
