Progress in Exosome Isolation Techniques

exosomes

Exosomes are one type of membrane vesicles secreted into extracellular space by most types of cells. In addition to performing many biological functions particularly in cell-cell communication, cumulative evidence has suggested that several biological entities in exosomes like proteins and ...

The purity of exosomes required for diagnostic profiling of small RNA suitable for biomarker discovery

exosomes

Small non-coding RNAs (ncRNA), including microRNAs (miRNA), enclosed in exosomes are being utilised for biomarker discovery in disease. Two common exosome isolation methods involve differential ultracentrifugation or differential ultracentrifugation coupled with Optiprep gradient fractionation. Generally, the incorporation of an Optiprep ...

MicroRNA Profiling of Exosomes

exosomes

Exosomes are nano-sized membrane-bound vesicles released by a range of different cell types. Exosomes have been shown to specifically package certain membrane and cytosolic proteins and nucleic acids. Furthermore, it has been shown that their contents can be transferred to ...
