Vesicles

Some articles on vesicles, vesicle:

Spitzenkörper
... It consists of many small vesicles and is present in growing hyphal tips, during spore germination and where branch formation occurs ... The vesicles are organized around a central area that contains a dense meshwork of microfilaments ... The cytoplasm of the extreme apex is occupied almost exclusively by secretory vesicles and microvesicles ...
Scoria - Formation
... dissolved gases are able to exsolve and form vesicles ... Some of the vesicles are trapped when the magma chills and solidifies ... Vesicles are usually small, spheroidal and do not impinge upon one another instead they open into one another with little distortion ...
Model Lipid Bilayer - Vesicles
... A vesicle is a lipid bilayer rolled up into a spherical shell, enclosing a small amount of water and separating it from the water outside the vesicle ... of this fundamental similarity to the cell membrane, vesicles have been used extensively to study the properties of lipid bilayers ... Another reason vesicles have been used so frequently is that they are relatively easy to make ...
Axon Terminal - Nerve Impulse Release
... Neurotransmitters are packaged into synaptic vesicles that cluster beneath the axon terminal membrane on the presynaptic side of a synapse ... The neurotransmitter molecule packages (vesicles) are created within the neuron, then travel down the axon to the distal axon terminal where they sit docked ... Calcium ions then trigger a biochemical cascade which results in vesicles fusing with the presynaptic membrane and releasing their contents to the synaptic cleft ...
Synapto-p Hluorin
... Synapto-pHluorin is a genetically encoded optical indicator of vesicle release and recycling ... a pH-sensitive form of green fluorescent protein (GFP) fused to the luminal side of a vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAMP) ... At the acidic pH inside transmitter vesicles, synapto-pHluorin is non-fluorescent ...
