what are microvesicles?
Asked by | 8th Jul, 2008, 11:31: AM
Microvesicles are fragments of plasma membrane shed from almost all cell types during activation. They range from 100nm to 700nm. Microvesicles can deliver mRNA between cells, leading to speculation on their possible role in intercellular exchange of genetic material. These microscopic vesicles contain lipid particles. Microvesicles play important roles in endocrine cells.
