I want to sidetrack your discussion a little bit. So far we discuss about the endocytosis of animals, or mammalian cells. Can endocytosis be found in plant cells? Would the presence of cell wall cause any hindrance to the process? :?:

Cells can not do endocytosis in plant cells. Because they have cell walls.

i don't think plant cells need to do endocytosis since they have plasmodesms and comunicate with each other by these structures
