Role of tumor-derived exosomes in cancer metastasis

exosomes

The highlights of cancer research include the discovery of exosomes, which are small (30-100 nm) sized vesicular nanoparticles released virtually by all cells. Tumor-derived exosomes (TDEs) are notoriously known for orchestrating the invasion-metastasis cascade via systemic pathways...

Exosomes mend a broken heart

exosomes

Stem cell transplantation therapy is a promising adjunct for regenerating damaged heart tissue; however, only modest improvements in cardiac function have been observed due to poor survival of transplanted cells in the ischemic heart. Therefore, there remains an unmet need ...

Role of stem cell-derived exosomes in cancer

exosomes

Exosomes are small, extracellular membrane- enclosed vesicles that contain a variety of molecules, including proteins, DNA, mRNA and non-coding RNA; these vesicles have been defined as new tools for intercellular communication between cells. Numerous types of cells, including stem cells, ...
