Melanotropic cells release predocked, large, dense-cored vesicles containing alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone in response to calcium entry through voltage-gated calcium channels. Our first objective was to study the relationship between exocytosis, rapid endocytosis, and calcium entry evoked by short step depolarizations in the order of duration of single action potentials (APs). Exocytosis and rapid endocytosis were monitored by capacitance measurements. We show that short step… CONTINUE READING
