After exocytosis, vesicle components that are lost into the plasma membrane must be retrieved into the cell. Models of endocytosis propose that endocytic proteins sequentially assemble onto vesicle proteins destined for recapture. We are monitoring the post-fusion behavior of microvesicle proteins in living neuroendocrine cells with three forms of microscopy: multi-color total-internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy, interferometric photo-activation localization microscopy (iPALM… CONTINUE READING
