Work with Paramecium has contributed to the actual understanding of certain aspects of exocytosis regulation, including membrane fusion. The system is faster and more synchronous than any other dense-core vesicle system described and its highly regular design facilitates correlation of functional...
Exocytic fusion reactions triggered by Ca 2+ are widespread in neural, endocrine, exocrine, hemapoetic and perhaps all cell types. These processes exhibit tremendous variation in latencies to fusion following a Ca 2+ rise and in rates of fusion. We review reported differences for synaptic vesicle...
