membrane recycling


membrane recycling
The process whereby membrane is internalised, fuses with an internal membranous compartment, and is then re-incorporated into the plasma membrane. In cells that are actively secreting by an exocrine method (in which secretory granules fuse with the plasma membrane), it is obviously essential to have some way of reducing the area of the plasma membrane. The membrane can then be used to form new secretory vesicles. The converse is true for phagocytic cells.
