Ca2+-dependent exocytosis and endocytosis of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) fibroblasts were investigated using capacitance measurement and rapid photolysis of a caged-Ca2+ compound, dimethoxynitrophenamine tetrasodium salt. CHO cells exhibited large and fast increases in membrane capacitance (1.9 +/- 1 picofarads, or 13 +/- 7% of total membrane area, mean +/- S.D., n = 37) upon Ca2+ jumps to [Ca2+]i larger than 20 microM. The fast exocytosis occurred with a delay (20-80 ms), and exhibited a rate… CONTINUE READING
