Extracellular vesicles (EVs), membrane vesicles that are secreted by a variety of mammalian cell types, have been shown to play an important role in intercellular communication. The contents of EVs, including proteins, microRNAs, and mRNAs, vary according to the cell type that secreted them. Accordingly, researchers have demonstrated that EVs derived from various cell types play different roles in biological phenomena. Considering the ubiquitous presence of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in the… CONTINUE READING
