The hypothesis that the retrieval of membranes of neurohypophysial neurosecretory granules (NSG) and small electron-lucent microvesicles occurs by different routes was tested by incubating neurohypophysial neurosecretosomes with colloidal gold particles of various sizes. Neurosecretosomes derived from normal Long Evans rats and incubated in media of normal ionic composition endocytosed a few small (<25 nm) gold particles into 40–50 nm electron-lucent microvesicles. After depolarisation, more… CONTINUE READING
