Exocytosis-endocytosis coupling in the pancreatic beta cell.

The stimulation of the release of insulin by glucose is accompanied by an enhanced uptake of cytochemically demonstrable horseradish peroxidase into endocytotic vesicles within the beta cells. An exocytosis-endocytosis coupling might represent a mechanism by which membrane constituents are recycled within the beta cells under conditions of increased… CONTINUE READING
