it is an endocytosis that happens on the trigger of the presence of a certain molecule in the surrounding.


Receptors detect this molecule, and if it is present, the whole process of endocytosis is enhanced in the cell.The receptor becomes part of the formed vesicle and the molecule is connected to this receptor, so this molecule is guaranteed to get indsie the cell.
