INTRODUCTION Cells release extracellular vesicles to their surroundings to communicate with each other. Exosomes are a subgroup of 30 - 100-nm-sized extracellular vesicles, originating from the endocytic pathway. They contain RNA molecules, proteins and lipids that can be transferred between cells. Exosomes have been found in several body fluids, indicating that this is a frequently used and tolerated system for cells to communicate RNA molecules and proteins over distances.
