In our study, we extracted exosomes
from the peripheral blood of the partially hepatectomized rats and identified the differential expression miRNAs through miRNAs microarray.
The new study builds upon a series of previously published studies in which NX Prenatal has demonstrated that the enrichment of exosome
and microvesicle particles from maternal blood and subsequent proteomic analysis enables risk stratification of spontaneous preterm birth in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Want to learn about exploiting exosomes
for therapeutic use in patients with cystic fibrosis?
Scientists working on the technology hope to produce a portable scanner that can look for exosomes
within a blood sample and provide rapid diagnosis.
The researchers extracted miRNA-containing exosomes
from hypothalamic stem cells and injected them into the cerebrospinal fluid of two groups of mice: middle-aged mice whose hypothalamic stem cells had been destroyed and normal middle-aged mice.
They say exosomes
act as "biological signalling systems", communicating between cells, carrying proteins, lipids, DNA and RNA.
Researchers at the National Eye Institute isolated exosomes
from bone marrow stem cells and performed weekly injections of the stem cell secretions into the rats' vitreous.
are tiny membrane-enclosed packages that form inside of cells before getting expelled.
However, none have interrogated micro RNA (miRNA) in exosomes
of bladder cancer.
Reported recently, the IBM team's results show size-based separation of bioparticles down to 20 nanometers (nm) in diameter, a scale that gives access to important particles such as DNA, viruses and exosomes
Our expertise is therefore in the isolation and downstream analysis of the exosomes
and their contents.
