I’ve been studying Biology on my own with an old second-hand textbook, and just finished a section that briefly mentioned endocytosis. The term and how it works (as well as how exocytosis) was explained just fine. The textbook merely doesn’t give an example of what sorts of materials would be so big that they’d need to enter the cell through endocytosis. Can anyone tell me about this?
Whenever I use wikipedia for a project/research/homework, I just use it to get an idea of the subject. Then I use that to direct me towards more legitimate sources of info (university sites, research papers, scientific journals, etc)
Seriously though wikipedia is generally very reliable and has high quality control; the only articles you need to worry about being false due to someone editing are the ones about towns in the middle of nowhere or articles that nobody cares about.
Things about biology, chemistry, countries, etc. are generally maintained very well.
