Preparations of synexin (1) exhibit a self-interaction in the absence of chromaffin granules as evidenced by an increase in absorbance at the wave-length used for observing granule aggregation (2). We incorporated this observation into a new formula for calculating the synexin-induced chromaffin granule aggregation. According to this amended analysis, synexin-induced aggregation is specific for chromaffin granules or their membranes. Treatment of intact chromaffin granuleswith trypsin or pronase renders the granules unresponsive to synexin.
