How cells manufacture proteins for export, how cells manufacture vesicles that are exported outside the cells, how human cells secrete small RNAs in extracellular vesicles and how these vesicles capture small RNA molecules is a huge exciting area of scientific investigation. Looking specifically at the EVs that we call exosomes, there is now evidence that the exosomes may mediate the transfer of information between cells.Read More
Understanding somatic mutations (change in genetic structures not passed down from parent cell or inherited by offspring) in tumour tissue is difficult. Historically, challenges in obtaining samples have been mainly due to the procedure being unpleasant for the patient and the process costly.Read More
A Very Successful 2018 at Nanoview Biosciences.
2018 has been a wonderful year for our company and we highlight below the most important milestones. We regularly update our website with news and details of events we are attending.
Early in the year we exhibited our ExoView platform at the German Society for Extracellular Vesicles event in Frankfurt, 1st and 2nd March. The GSEV's aim is to promote research into extracellular vesicles, particularly with the goal of supporting young academics. Naturally we were delighted to attend this most important first annual meeting.Read More
Nestled in the membranes of human cells exists a type of difficult to find protein that we call tetraspanin. Tetraspanins are a family of membrane proteins found in all multicellular eukaryotes.Read More
Interest and subsequent research into exosomes is continuing in the fields of science and medicine, due in large part to the recent discovery that exosomes contain functional RNA. Exosomes, in a living organism, are present in several bodily fluids, for example: joint membrane, saliva, urine, amniotic fluids, plasma and many cells in the human body are able to produce and release exosomes into their neighbouring environment.Read More
Phase II grant to support development of innovative exosome characterization platform.Read More
A phenotype results from the expression of an organism’s genes as well as the influence of environmental factors and the interactions between them.Read More
Liquid biopsy was named as one 2015’s ten best breakthrough technologies according to the MIT Technology Review. Although, the practice has been around for some time, renewed pursuit of academic studies in the field of exosomes is pushing forward further scientific work looking at the benefits liquid biopsy. This renewed interest in exosomes partly explains the resurgence of interest in liquid biopsies as a way forward in cancer cell detection and treatment.Read More
Oncosomes are, at present, scientifically understood to be membrane-derived micro-vesicles that are secreted by cancer cells and transfer oncogenic messages and protein complexes across cell borders. The names, from, oncogenic: relating to tumour formation or tending to cause tumours, oncosomes are being characterised as exosomes that contain oncogenic cargo and/or unique signatures of the tumour cells from which they emerge.Read More
Endocytosis takes place where the cell recives matter, such as nutrients and ions by the process of invagination of its membrane.
The matter is taken in and forms what is called an endosome. There are three types of endocytosis and each type will involve the formation of an endosome.Read More
Endosomes are membrane bound structures within a cell that we call vesicles. They are formed through a complex establishment of processes which is known collectively as endocytosis. Endosomes are essential for the control of substances in and out of a cell. They act as a temporary vesicles for transportation.Read More
Company prepares for commercial launch of its innovative products for detection and characterization of Exosomes.Read More
Exosomes are a type of heterogeneous extracellular microvesicle (EMV) from a group that includes micro vesicles and apoptotic bodies. They are released from cells upon fusion of an intermediate endocytic compartment, the multivesicular body (MVB), with the plasma membrane.Read More
