How the Cell Swallows (video) European Molecular Biology Laboratory Loading video... Caption Scientists at EMBL have combined the power of two kinds of microscope to produce a three-dimensional movie of how cells 'swallow' nutrients and other molecules by engulfing them. The study is the first to follow changes in the shape of the cell's membrane and track proteins thought to influence those changes.
