Hydroxytryptamine transport by the bovine chromaffin-granule membrane.


5-Hydroxytryptamine is accumulated by resealed chromaffin-granule 'ghosts' if a pH gradient (acid inside) is imposed across their membranes by preincubating them at low pH. This uptake, like that driven by MgATP, is reserpine- and uncoupler-sensitive. This strongly suggests that catecholamines are taken up by intact granules in response to a pH gradient. In… (More)
