Human Gene Set: GOBP_EXOCYTOSIS

For the Mouse gene set with the same name, see GOBP_EXOCYTOSIS

Standard name GOBP_EXOCYTOSIS
Systematic name M1231
Brief description 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. Exocytosis can occur either by full fusion, when the vesicle collapses into the plasma membrane, or by a kiss-and-run mechanism that involves the formation of a transient contact, a pore, between a granule (for exemple of chromaffin cells) and the plasma membrane. The latter process most of the time leads to only partial secretion of the granule content. Exocytosis begins with steps that prepare vesicles for fusion with the membrane (tethering and docking) and ends when molecules are secreted from the cell. [GOC:mah, ISBN:0716731363, PMID:22323285]
