During exocytosis, secretory vesicles of mast cells generate a current transient that marks the opening of the fusion pore, the first aqueous connection that forms between the vesicle lumen and the cell exterior. By recording and analyzing such current transients, we have tracked the conductance of the fusion pore over the first millisecond of its existence… CONTINUE READING
