TIRF imaging of insulin granule exocytosis from a transfected Min6 cells expressing synaptopFluorin. The exocytotic response is elicited by application of elevated [K].
Insulin secreting Min6 cells expressing ROAR-S FRET probes stimulated to undergo exocytosis (Lam et al., 2010). Movie shows time-lapse imaging of CIDA fluorescence intensity illustrating distinct puncta of fluorescence that represent secretory granules. Appearance of yellow bar indicates application of elevated [K] stimulus. Responser granules are circled. Frames were acquired at 0.5 Hz.
Pseudocolored apparent FRET efficiency of Rab27A in complex with its effector Slp4a on granules that corresponds to Movie 1.
