We present the exocytosis profile of two types of peptide-coated nanoparticles, which have similar charge and size but different functionality. While one kind of particles appears to progressively exocytose, the other one has a more complex profile, suggesting that some of the particles are re-uptaken by the cells. Both types of particles retain their colloidal stability after exocytosis.
