SECRETION Candid Camera on Secretion

The interaction of SNARE proteins, like SNAP25, syntaxin, or synaptobrevin, is a key event in the fusion intracellular membranes, such as when secretory vesicles fuse with the plasma membrane during regulated secretion. An et al. engineered a series of fluorescent SNAP25 analogs that change color when SNAREs interact in living cells. In time-resolved recordings, SNARE complexes could be observed to assemble and disassemble when single cells were stimulated to secrete.
