Caption: Representation of the mechanism of release in endocine cells producing protein or peptide hormones. Membranes bounding the granules (green) coalesce with the cell membrane. The exteriorized granule disintegrates and the hormone (blue)diffuses into the blood (red) through the fenestrated endothelium of an adjacent capillary or sinusoid.
