Fusion proteins made of green fluorescent protein coupled to SNAP-25 or synaptobrevin were overexpressed in bovine chromaffin cells in order to study the role of critical protein domains in exocytosis. Point mutations in the C-terminal domain of SNAP-25 (K201E and L203E) produced a marked inhibition of secretion, whereas single (Q174K, Q53K) and double(More)
The alpha7 subunit is a component of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors expressed in bovine chromaffin cells. The peculiar localization of these receptors at adrenomedullary areas adjacent to the adrenal cortex suggests that factors, probably glucocorticoids, arising from the cortex might diffuse and regulate alpha7 receptor expression. In reporter gene(More)
