Edgar, J. R. (2016). Q&A: What are exosomes, exactly?. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12915-016-0268-z
Abstract Exosomes are extracellular vesicles first described as such 30 years ago and since implicated in cell–cell communication and the transmission of disease states, and explored as a means of drug discovery. Yet fundamental questions about their biology remain unanswered. Here I explore what exosomes are, highlight the difficulties in studying them and explain the current definition and some of the outstanding issues in exosome biology.
