Ingestion and storage question

Postby AC24 » Wed Oct 20, 2010 10:16 pm

Hey what's up guys? First time posting here. I have a Topic I have to look up and my group divided up the Topic into
"sub-topics" We have:Cells must be able to store nutrients, isolate and digest damaged organelles and potentially harmful chemicals.

I have been assigned with Cell storage and Ingestion. For the cell storage, I was thinking of Vacuoles and Vesicles, both can be used for storing. Are there anymore?

I can not find something that "ingests" cells. I am new to Biology, so yea, I'm pretty bad at it. Can someone help me? Maybe just a little hint?Cytoplasm Lysosomes? Vacuoles?

Phagocytosis and pinocytosis. Primary and secondary lysosomes. Endocytosis.

Wiki's got some nice explanations.

Think hungry amoeba!

Good luck - it's a nice topic to be given. :)
