Exosome fractions of dendritic cells (DC) produced in long-term cultures (LTC) were found to contain Mycoplasma contaminants. In this study, Mycoplasma-infected, -uninfected, and -reinfected cultures of DC and control cell lines have been compared for their capacity to activate lymphocytes. Using differential centrifugation, size fractionation, and inhibition assays, it has been possible to map Mycoplasma to the exosome or vesicle fraction purified from culture supernatant (CSN). Mycoplasma...[Show more]
