Circulating exosomes cause tumor malignancy in a chronic sleep fragmentation model

exosomes

Chronic sleep fragmentation (SF) increases cancer aggressiveness in mice. Exosomes exhibit pleiotropic biological functions, including immune regulatory functions, antigen presentation, intracellular communication and inter-cellular transfer of RNA and proteins. University of Chicago researchers hypothesized that SF-induced alterations in biosynthesis and ...
