Endocytosis (Grades 11-12)

Print Test (Only the test content will print)
Name: Date:


Active transport of large particles across a cell's plasma membrane from outside the cell (the extracellular region) into its cytoplasm is called
  1. plasmolysis
  2. osmosis
  3. endocytosis
  4. exocytosis
The diagram shows different methods cells use to take in large particles. Use the diagram to answer questions 2A-E.
Endocytosis Without Text Labels
Which type of endocytosis is specifically taking place in #3?
  1. pinocytosis

  3. phagocytosis
  4. passive transport
What type of action is taking place in #1?
  1. phagocytosis
  2. pinocytosis
  3. receptor-mediated endocytosis
  4. exocytosis
The structure formed during pinocytosis represented by the letter B is called a                     .
What structure is represented by the letter C during receptor-mediated endocytosis?
  1. cytoplasm
  2. coat protein
  3. vesicle
  4. pseudopodium
What is the structure called that is labeled D in the phagocytosis diagram?
  1. a vesicle
  2. a phagosome
  3. a pseudopodium
  4. a receptor
Pinocytosis is molecule specific, only taking in certain dissolved solutes.
  1. True
  2. False
What is the importance of pseudopodia to the process of phagocytosis?

Receptor-mediated endocytosis is highly selective, only allowing specific things to enter into the cell.
  1. True
  2. False
