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.
