Exosomes – integral component to the dynamic and reciprocal cross-talk between tumour cells and the metastatic niche

exosome rna

The development of life-threatening cancer metastases at distant organs requires disseminated tumour cells’ adaptation to, and co-evolution with, the drastically different microenvironments of metastatic sites. Cancer cells of common origin manifest distinct gene expression patterns after metastasizing to different organs. ...

Grazing Affects Exosomal Circulating MicroRNAs in Cattle

exosome rna

Circulating microRNAs (c-miRNAs) are associated with physiological adaptation to acute and chronic aerobic exercise in humans. To investigate the potential effect of grazing movement on miRNA circulation in cattle, here researchers from the National Institute of Livestock and Grassland Science, Japan ...

Exosomal MicroRNAs in Tissue Crosstalk

exosomes

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are key regulators of the transcriptome and thereby as potential disease biomarkers as well as putative new drug targets. Following their discovery some 2,000 distinct miRNAs have now been identified in the humane genome and evidence continues to ...
