Previous studies on exocytosis in Paramecium using mutants affecting trichocyst extrusion permitted us to analyze the assembly and function of three intramembrane particle arrays ("ring" and "rosette" in the plasma membrane, "annulus" in the trichocyst membrane) involved in the interaction between these two membranes. Using a conditional mutation, nd9, which blocks rosette assembly and prevents exocytosis at the nonpermissive temperature, we have analyzed the effect of temperature on the… CONTINUE READING
