Several proteins involved in exocytosis have been identified recently, but it is still completely unclear which molecules perform the fusion event itself. Although in viral fusion the fusion proteins are known, even there the molecular mechanism remains controversial. Investigation of single fusion events by electrophysiological techniques together with fluorimetric measurements have now provided some insight into the properties of the first aqueous connection, the fusion pore. This pore has an… CONTINUE READING
