Isolating Multiple Extracellular Vesicles Subsets, Including Exosomes and Membrane Vesicles, from Bovine Milk Using Sodium Citrate and Differential Ultracentrifugation
Authors:  Abderrahim Benmoussa, Sara Michel, Caroline Gilbert and Patrick Provost, date: 06/05/2020, view: 1016, Q&A: 0
Milk is a complex fluid that contains various types of proteins and extracellular vesicles (EVs). Some proteins can mingle with EVs, and interfere with their isolation. Among these proteins, caseins form micelles of a size comparable to milk EVs, ...

Extracellular Vesicles Tracking and Quantification Using CT and Optical Imaging in Rats
Exosomes, a subtype of extracellular vesicles, are nanovesicles of endocytic origin. Exosomes contain a plethora of proteins, lipids, and genetic materials of parent cells to facilitate intercellular communications. Tracking exosomes in vivo ...
