Hypothetical model of catecholamine uptake into adrenal medullary storage vesicles


Journal Article

Recent studies from several laboratories suggest that the uptake of catecholamines into adrenal medullary vesicles is mediated by a mobile carrier in the vesicle membrane. A transport model is proposed in which catecholamines attach to the carrier on the outside of the membrane and are detached on the inside surface by the action of ATP; probable loci of action of uptake inhibitors (reserpine and N-ethylmaleimide) are identified. © 1973.
