- This process allows the vesicles to dock to that part of the membrane where the neurotransmitters are due to be released into the synapse (the active zone).
- They are united by the presence of small vesicles in, or just under, the plasma membrane.
- The prevailing model argues that specific proteins are shuttled around to their destinations, both within and outside the cell, in enclosed vesicles.
- The two vesicles resemble small, bulbous pouches and are located just above the prostate gland.
- Both vesicles and bilayer patches were found not to move laterally over the time range of 10 min and more, except at relatively high imaging forces.
