The effects of temperature on granular secretion were studied in individual bovine adrenal chromaffin and rat peritoneal mast cells. It was found that more molecules are released from individual granules at physiological temperature than at room temperature, where such experiments are normally performed. In mast cells, there is also a dramatic decrease in the time required for exocytosis to be complete at 37 degrees C compared to room temperature. In the presence of some cations, the amount… CONTINUE READING
