Multivesicular exocytosis in rat pancreatic beta cells.
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: To establish the occurrence, modulation and functional significance of compound exocytosis in insulin-secreting beta cells. METHODS: Exocytosis was monitored in rat beta cells by electrophysiological, biochemical and optical methods. The functional assays were complemented by three-dimensional reconstruction of confocal imaging, transmission and block face scanning electron microscopy to obtain ultrastructural evidence of compound exocytosis. RESULTS: Compound exocytosis cont...Expand abstract
