Rapid exocytosis in single chromaffin cells recorded from mouse adrenal slices.


We report here that brief depolarizations such as action potentials trigger exocytosis in thin mouse adrenal slices. The secretory rates obtained in membrane capacitance recordings from chromaffin cells in slices are faster than those observed in isolated cells. Fast exocytosis in slices is attributable to the rapid release of a small pool of vesicles. The… (More)
