Specific transport proteins package classical neurotransmitters into vesicles so that their release can be regulated by neural activity. Previous studies have suggested that a single activity mediates the vesicular transport of monoamines in the adrenal gland, brain, and other tissues such as mast cells and platelets. However, molecular cloning has recently identified two vesicular transporters for monoamines. Although the predicted proteins are closely related in sequence, they show a range of… CONTINUE READING
