Our data and previously published results [31] indicate that blood plasma fractions contained full-length RNAs and their fragments.
Thus, the enrichment of fraction III (16,000g pellets) with mitochondrial transcripts can be explained by the presence of cell-free mitochondria in blood plasma fractions. In accordance with this, mitochondria as whole organelles were detected by TEM in 16,000g plasma pellets (blood fraction III, Figure 1(a)) and were not found in plasma 160,000g pellets or supernatants.
Such uniform distribution between blood plasma fractions was determined only for L1 transcripts and allows us to suppose that L1 sequence motifs are not involved in the process of RNA loading into extracellular complexes.
