Extracellular vesicles as metabolic relays in obesity

exosomes

Obesity-associated metabolic dysfunctions are linked to dysregulated production of adipokines. Accumulating evidence suggests a role for fat-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) in obesity-metabolic disturbances. Since EVs convey numerous proteins, Angers University researchers aimed to evaluate their contribution in adipokine secretion. The ...

Adipocyte exosomes drive melanoma progression

exosomes

New research has identified a novel mode of communication between adipocytes and cancer cells that regulates tumour aggressiveness. Adipocyte exosomes (ad-exos) purified from conditioned medium of 3T3-F442A mature adipocytes increased melanoma cell migration and invasion in vitro. Analysis of the ...
