a: secretory vesicle ~
b: a bag of proteins hormones coins


A bag of coins. The vesicles often contain important molecules, eg neurotransmitters. When they are released by the cell they often will have a physiological affect outside of that cell. This process is somewhat like throwing a bag of coins into a busy street, the action would cause the behavior of people seeing that bag to change.
