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
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
