Exosome origin determines cell targeting and the transfer of therapeutic nanoparticles towards target cells
Exosomes, involved in the transfer of molecules between cells are of great interest for diagnosis and therapy of disease. María Sancho-Albero and colleagues loaded gold nanoparticles into cell-type specific exosomes and showed that these would then preferentially be taken up by the corresponding cell type of origin (and were excluded by other cells) providing a mode of exosome mediated targeting by cell type.
Featured collection – Nanosensors: their potential use in the life sciences and clinical medicine
Here we present a special issue on nanosensors in a rather broad sense, focusing on two questions: (1) why study nanosensors; and (2) what according their potential use in the life sciences and, more specifically, in medicine might be.
