Although exocytosis is now known to be the universal method by which proteins are released from eukaryotic cells, we know surprisingly little of the mechanism by which exocytosis occurs. One reason for this is that it has proved difficult to capture sufficient of these evanescent events to permit their study. The difficulty with which exocytoses can be visualized with standard preparative techniques varies among tissues, but the problem is particularly apparent in the mammalian nervous system… CONTINUE READING
