Tag: Extracellular Vesicles

Baton passing
Scientists have shown that extracellular vesicles derived from senescent stem cells can improve the proliferation, viability, and migration capacity of healthy stem cells [1]. Cell-to-cell packages Extracellular vesicles (EVs, not to be confused with electric vehicles) are tiny membrane-bound bubbles that are emitted by cells and carry various molecular cargo such as proteins and miRNA....
Extracellular vesicles
A review paper published in Cells has described multiple ways in which the secretion of extracellular vesicles (EVs) changes with aging, leading the authors to propose it as its own hallmark. Extracellular vesicles and their uses This review begins with an outline and explanation of extracellular vesicles and their classifications. Cells use extracellular vesicles to...
Tendon inflammation
Researchers publishing in Journal of Nanobiotechnology have found that extracellular vesicles derived from young cells are effective in treating a model of a common tendon disease. Tendinopathy and stem cells Swelling, weakness, tenderness, and tendon pain during activities are the characteristic symptoms of chronic tendinopathy [1], a condition that is exacerbated by aging and obesity...
Skin wrinkle
Scientists have demonstrated that extracellular vesicles loaded with mRNA coding for collagen production can be easily produced and delivered into aging fibroblasts in vitro and in vivo, boosting collagen levels and eliminating signs of skin aging in mice [1]. Superior delivery method Finding a good way to deliver molecular cargo into cells is important. Some...
Basic mouse
Scientists have shown that injection of extracellular vesicles secreted by young adipose-derived stem cells increases fitness and promotes tissue rejuvenation in aged mice [1]. Mode of communication Small extracellular vesicles are one of the ways in which cells communicate with each other [2]. Basically, cells engulf molecules, such as proteins, DNA, and RNA, in pieces...
Muscle DNA
In a new study published in Journal of Nanobiotechnology, researchers prevented muscle atrophy both in vitro and in vivo by delivering a CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing system packaged in engineered extracellular vesicles [1]. When just using it doesn’t quite cut it Aging is accompanied by the loss of muscle mass, also known as sarcopenia, which deteriorates...
