These proteins enter into the rough endoplasmic cisternae, are transported to the trans-Golgi network (TGN), and then are targeted into dense-core secretory granules (DCGs), known as large dense-core vesicles (LDCVs), or into chromaffin granules (CGs), in the adrenal medulla.
The maturation of propeptides into functional peptides is performed during the vesicular transport within large dense-core vesicles (LDCVs) and requires the joint action of several endopeptidases (cathepsin L, aminopeptidase B and E, and prohormone convertase 2) [21-23].
Although neuropeptides are stored in large dense core vesicles (LDCVs) that also contain large amounts of calcium, it has been unclear whether these locally based calcium supplies can also be used to modulate secretion.
