Axonal transport and neurotransmitter release, for example, are now known to occur by mechanisms that are related to those of membrane trafficking and secretion used by all eukaryotic cells, and the neurofilaments whose unusual staining properties allowed neuroanatomists to trace axonal tracts are now recognized as part of a larger family of intermediate filaments found in many cell types.
