DAG for GO:0017156id: GO:0017156

name: calcium-ion regulated exocytosis
namespace: biological_process
def: "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, induced by a rise in cytosolic calcium-ion levels." [GOC:go_curators]
comment: Note that the calcium regulated exocytosis pathway can be leaky: some level of exocytosis via this pathway occurs spontaneously. This phenomenon underlies spontaneous neurotransmitter release from presynapses. This phenomenon is distinct from the unregulated, calcium independent exocytosis pathway.
synonym: "calcium ion-dependent exocytosis" EXACT []
