The relationship between the light scattering properties of zymogen granules and the release of their contained proteins.

Abstract

The optical density of suspensions of the digestive enzyme-containing zymogen granule, a roughly spherical 1 micron diameter membrane-enclosed subcellular structure isolated from the exocrine pancreas of mammals, is reduced greatly when they are suspended in physiological media. This reduction in optical density is accompanied by the release of the granule… (More)
