Apoptotic cell’s dying wish is to be replaced

It has been estimated that out of ~37.2 trillion cells in an adult human, 50-70 billion cells die each day through the highly regulated programmed cell death, known as apoptosis. Thus, new cells must be generated to

Thermo-acoustofluidics: composition-based separation of vesicles

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are membrane-enclosed entities actively released from cells into almost all types of bodily fluids such as blood and urine. Exosomes, i.e. small EVs with 40-100 nm in diameter, are particularly important since they serve

Participation of secreted protein L5 in formation of outer membrane vesicles produced by Lysobacter sp. XL1

Formation of outer membrane vesicles is a physiological feature of Gram-negative bacteria. Vesicles formation is result of splitting off the evagination of bacterial outer membrane. Its size varies from 20 to 300 nm. During formation of vesicles,
