Abstract: Extracellular vesicles (EVs) including apoptotic bodies (ABs), microvesicles (MVs), exosomes (EXOs) and cell derived artificial nanovesicles (NVs) are important mediators of cell-to-cell communication, in part by transferring bioactive molecules such as DNA, mRNA, miRNA, siRNA, proteins, and lipids. These EVs are released by many cell types, including melanoma cells, and are found in many body fluids. EVs derived from various cell types differ in their molecular composition making them as import... more
