Try again
Pinocytosis is the process by which the cell takes up fluid through pinocytic vesicles and occurs during endocytosis.

Try again
In pinocytosis small amounts of extracellular fluid and solute molecules are taken up by the pinocytic vesicles, or pinosomes, which then pinch off the plasma membrane along the endosome pathway.
