1. Exosomes and Cancer: the Inside of Intrigue

    The cellular process of exosome shedding turns out to have a wide range of important regulatory functions. Their original discovery in sheep reticulocyte maturation gave rise to the idea that exosomes may function as a trash bin for unnecessary and redundant proteins, which, at the time, offered an alternative pathway for lysosome degradation [1]. Nevertheless, most attention has been given to their role in supporting the immune system. Functional in vivo experiments have shown that exosomes affect the immune system by expressing and processing surface antigens.
