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...

Breast Cancer-Derived Extracellular Vesicles

exosome rna

The study of extracellular vesicles (EVs) in cancer progression is a complex and rapidly evolving field. Whole categories of cellular interactions in cancer which were originally presumed to be due solely to soluble secreted molecules have now evolved to include ...

Exosome proteins predict cancer’s spread

exosome rna

from the Cornell Chronicle By Alla Katsnelson It’s been a long-standing mystery why certain types of cancers spread to particular organs in the body. Now, investigators at Weill Cornell Medicine have discovered precisely how this happens, supporting a century-old hypothesis ...

A review of exosome separation techniques

exosome rna

Exosomes participate in cancer metastasis, but studying them presents unique challenges as a result of their small size and purification difficulties. Asymmetrical field flow fractionation with in-line ultraviolet absorbance, dynamic light scattering, and multi-angle light scattering was applied to the ...
