Circulating microparticles released from various cell types are present in healthy individuals and the number and composition of their membrane vary in different disorders. Long considered to be cellular debris, microparticles have been recently identified as regulatory vectors of intercellular cross-talk. Indeed, circulating microparticles represent a heterogeneous mixture of spheroids of diverse surface membrane glycoproteins and lipids, with diverse cytoplasm components, the pattern of which… CONTINUE READING
