Characterization of extracellular vesicles by IR spectroscopy

Researchers from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences isolated extracellular vesicles by differential centrifugation from Jurkat T-cell line and investigated by attenuated total reflection Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR). Amide and CH stretching band intensity ratios calculated from IR bands, characteristic of ...

Unconventional secretion and subsequent uptake of molecular cargo via extracellular vesicles (EVs) is an important mechanism by which cells can exert paracrine effects. While this phenomenon has been widely characterized in the context of their ability to promote inflammation, less ...
