GO:0006887 exocytosis

Term Information

ID GO:0006887
Name exocytosis
Ontology Biological Process
Definition A process of secretion by a cell that results in the release of intracellular molecules (e.g. hormones, matrix proteins) contained within a membrane-bounded vesicle by fusion of the vesicle with the plasma membrane of a cell. Steps that prepare vesicles for fusion with the membrane (e.g. docking and priming) are included in this process. This is the process in which most molecules are secreted from eukaryotic cells.

Timestamp Action Category Detail
2016-01-20 Deleted DEFINITION A process of secretion by a cell that results in the release of intracellular molecules (e.g. hormones, matrix proteins) contained within a membrane-bounded vesicle by fusion of the vesicle with the plasma membrane of a cell. This is the process in which most molecules are secreted from eukaryotic cells.
