Theory of Vesicle Motion and Interpretation of Electrophysiological Experiments in Chromaffin Cells, Hippocampal Neurons and Neuromuscular Junctions
Communication among secretory cells, neurons and other related cells is accompanied by a process called exocytosis, which consists in the release of neurotransmitters into the intercellular space. The neurotransmitter molecules are transported inside vesicles, which move towards the cell membrane. Once at an active site of the membrane, vesicles can undergo fusion with the membrane. As a result of fusion, a pore in the membrane is produced, through which neurotransmitter molecules leave the cell. Exocytosis is ...
