Adipocyte exosomes drive melanoma progression

exosomes

New research has identified a novel mode of communication between adipocytes and cancer cells that regulates tumour aggressiveness. Adipocyte exosomes (ad-exos) purified from conditioned medium of 3T3-F442A mature adipocytes increased melanoma cell migration and invasion in vitro. Analysis of the ...

Magnetic resonance imaging of melanoma exosomes

exosome rna

Exosomes are cell derived extracellular nanovesicles that relay molecular signals pertinent to both normal physiologic and disease processes. The ability to modify and track exosomes in vivo is essential to understanding exosome pathogenesis, and for utilizing exosomes as effective diagnostic ...

MiRNA in melanoma-derived exosomes

exosome rna

Proteins, RNAs and viruses can be spread through exosomes, therefore transport utilizing these nanovesicles is of the great interest. MiRNAs are common exosomal constituents capable of influencing expression of a variety of target genes. MiRNA signatures of exosomes are unique ...
