  • The ATP dependence of the kinetics of Ca 2+ -dependent exocytosis after flash photolysis of caged Ca 2+ was studied by capacitance measurements with submillisecond resolution in single synaptic terminals of retinal bipolar neurons. (rupress.org)
  • After control experiments verified that this combination of techniques is valid for the study of exocytosis in synaptic terminals, a comparison was made between the Ca 2+ dependence of the rate of exocytosis in synaptic terminals internally dialyzed with MgATP, MgATP-γ-S, or no added Mg 2+ or nucleotide.

  • The identification of a number of highly conserved proteins that are important for membrane trafficking and fusion, combined with the development of new techniques for monitoring exocytosis have permitted models of the molecular events leading up to the calcium-dependent fusion of synaptic vesicles to be proposed.

  • fusion
  • Compensatory endocytosis is thought to limit changes in cell size and retrieve fusion machinery and other misplaced integral membrane proteins following exocytosis, however little is known about the extent, timing, mechanism and precise function of compensatory endocytosis in endothelial cells.
