Exosomes Secreted by Bacterially Infected Macrophages Are Proinflammatory

O'Neill, Helen; Quah, Ben


Exosomes are small vesicles that are secreted from cells. They are derived from multivesicular endosomes that fuse with the plasma membrane, thereby releasing their internal vesicles into the extracellular environment. Exosomes from antigen-presenting cells contain a range of immunostimulatory molecules that activate T cells, which suggests that they may have an important role in the propagation of immune responses. Of considerable interest is the finding that exosomes derived from bacterially...[Show more]
