WHAT DOES PHAGOCYTIZE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

phagocytize

Phagocytosis

In cell biology, phagocytosis (from Ancient Greek φαγεῖν (phagein), meaning "to devour", κύτος, (kytos), meaning "cell", and -osis, meaning "process") is the process by which a cell—often a phagocyte or a protist—engulfs a solid particle to form an internal vesicle known as a phagosome. Phagocytosis was revealed by Élie Metchnikoff in 1882. Phagocytosis is a specific form of endocytosis involving the vesicular internalization of solids such as bacteria, and is therefore distinct from other forms of endocytosis such as the vesicular internalization of various liquids (pinocytosis). Phagocytosis is involved in the acquisition of nutrients for some cells. The process is homologous to eating at the level of single-celled organisms; in multicellular animals, the process has been adapted to eliminate debris and pathogens, as opposed to taking in fuel for cellular processes, except in the case of the animal Trichoplax. In the immune system, phagocytosis is a major mechanism used to remove pathogens and cell debris.

Definition of phagocytize in the English dictionary

The definition of phagocytize in the dictionary is to carry out phagocytosis or the scenario in which a cell consumes other material.
