Membrane dynamics within the chick ciliary neuronal growth cone were investigated by using the membrane-impermeant dye FM1-43. A depolarization-evoked endocytosis was observed that shared many properties with the synaptic vesicle recycling previously described at the presynaptic terminal. In addition, in the absence of depolarization a basal level of constitutive endocytotic activity was observed at approximately 30% of the rate of evoked endocytosis. This constitutive endocytosis accounted for… CONTINUE READING
