Abstract

Exocytosis (sometimes called emiocytosis) is a phenomenon through which the membrane-bounded content of a cellular constituent is transferred from the intracellular compartment to the extracellular compartment, by means of complex membrane processes, without any discontinuity of the cell-limiting surface. In the pituitary, exocytosis is considered as mainly involving the secretory granules and possibly secretory vesicles. However, it can also involve residual bodies, resulting from the lysosomal autophagy of secretory granules, after secretion blockade. Granular exocytosis triggers endocytotic phenomena during which patches of the peripheral membrane as well as a part of the extracellular fluid become internalized.
