Exocytosis and endocytosis are pivotal in many biological processes, but remain difficult to quantify. Here we combine a new algorithm for estimating vesicle size with a detailed morphological analysis of tip-growing cells, in which exocytosis is highly localized and therefore more readily quantified. Cell preservation was rendered as life-like as possible by rapid freezing. This allowed us to produce the first estimates of exocytosis rates in the root hairs and pollen tubes of the model plant… CONTINUE READING
