Compound exocytosis occurs in many cell types. It represents a specialized form of secretion in which vesicles undergo fusion with each other as well as with the plasma membrane. In most cases, compound exocytosis occurs sequentially, with deeper-lying vesicles fusing, after a delay, with vesicles that have already fused with the plasma membrane. However, in some cells, vesicles can also apparently fuse with each other intracellularly before any interaction with the plasma membrane. In this… CONTINUE READING
