The classical mechanism of cellular secretion is via secretory portals at the cell plasma membrane called porosomes.

Porosomes are permanent cup-shaped lipoprotein structure at the cell plasma membrane, where secretory vesicles transiently dock and fuse to release intra-vesicular contents from the cell.
