Profiling microRNA from exosomes and blood

Exosomes are nano-sized vesicles, secreted by all types of cells and found abundantly in biofluids like blood, saliva and urine. These extracellular vesicles carry multiple functional passengers including DNA, miRNA, non-coding RNA and proteins, and function as intercellular communication vehicles by transporting molecules between specific cells. microRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that play an intricate… Read article →
