The ciliated protozoon Tetrahymena thermophila contains membrane-bounded secretory organelles termed mucocysts, the release of which has previously been characterized ultrastructurally as a model system for the events occurring during membrane fusion and protein secretion. Recently, a series of secretory mutant strains of Tetrahymena has been isolated following mutagenesis of a parental wild-type strain designated SB210. In this study, the correlates of non-release in one unique mutant strain… CONTINUE READING
