secretory vesicles.(vesicles are  small membranous cavities that store cargo before it is sent out of a cell to a vacule)

Freshly made proteins are carried in these little bags. Their functioning is like our intestines. When a vescile reaches its destination, it merges with the membrane and releases its contents. When a courier comes to your home or place of business, he sees you for a signature (merges with you) and then releases the package he has for you.

Inciting this merging are two proteins, t-SNARE and v-SNARE. The vesicle knows exactly which 'address' to go to, as an 'address' has been put on the package. How it does this is not understood; but can you see the electricity that carries your request by phone for an item to be delivered by courier?

Vesicles with ER (endoplasmic reticulum) v-SNARE shake hands only with Golgi t-SNARE.
