Exosomes are membrane vesicles that are released by cells upon fusion of multivesicular bodies with the plasma membrane. Their molecular composition reflects their origin in endosomes as intraluminal vesicles. In addition to a common set of membrane and cytosolic molecules, exosomes harbor unique subsets of proteins linked to cell type-associated functions. Exosome secretion participates in the eradication of obsolete proteins but several findings, essentially in the immune system, indicate… Expand

TLDR
The biological function of exosomes and their involvement in physiological and pathological processes are summarized and the potential clinical application ofExosomes as biomarkers and therapeutic tools will be discussed. Expand
Itinerant exosomes: emerging roles in cell and tissue polarity.
TLDR
New evidence is discussed suggesting that exosomes participate in the transport of morphogens and RNA, and thus influence cell polarity and developmental patterning of tissues. Expand
Exosomes act as molecular vehicles contributing to cellular cholesterol efflux
TLDR
It is shown that oligodendroglial cells upregulate their exosome cholesterol secretion upon induction of NPC-like late endosomal/lysosomal cholesterol trapping either by administration of U18666A or by siRNA-mediated down-regulation of NPC1. Expand
The Cell Biology of Exosomes: Historical and Perspectives
Cells release into the environment not only soluble but also membrane-associated factors. Whereas membranous microvesicles up to 1 µm are generated by outward budding of portions of the plasmaExpand
Shedding light on the cell biology of extracellular vesicles
TLDR
Extracellular vesicles are now considered as an additional mechanism for intercellular communication, allowing cells to exchange proteins, lipids and genetic material. Expand

TLDR
This review focuses on various strategies for purifying exosomes and discusses their biophysical and biochemical properties, and an update on proteomic analysis of exosome from various cell types and body fluids is provided and host-cell specific proteomic signatures are discussed. Expand
Mechanisms of Multivesicular Body Biogenesis and Exosome Release
TLDR
A novel lipid-dependent pathway for cargo transport to the ILVs in MVBs for exosome formation is identified, providing a basis for understanding the biogenesis and functions of exosomes in the central nervous system. Expand
Proteomic profiling of exosomes: Current perspectives
TLDR
The recent observation that exosomes contain both mRNA and microRNA, which can be transferred to another cell, and be functional in that new environment, is an exciting new development in the unraveling exosome saga. Expand
