The biogenesis and function of MSC-derived exosomes. Secreted exosomes through fusion of multi-vesicular bodies with the cell membrane are mediators of paracrine effects. Exosomes can elicit cell-to-cell communication through intracellular uptake or membrane receptors. Exosomes, which are bilipid membrane vesicles with diverse proteins and RNAs, have the potential to exert various effects such as immunomodulation, disease therapy, and tissue repair in local recipient cells.
