Hybrid atomic force microscopy (AFM)-fluorescence microscopy (FM) investigation of exocytosis in lung epithelial cells (ATII cells) allows the detection of individual exocytic events by FM, which can be simultaneously correlated to structural changes in individual cells by AFM. Exocytosis of lamellar bodies (LBs) represents a slow form of exocytosis found… CONTINUE READING
