Washington: Unlocking the secrets of how the body heals itself, especially when organs become diseased, a new study shows that the presence of small particles known as microvesicles helps cellular communication and enables healing. Microvesicles are much smaller than a normal cell and contain genetic information such as messenger ribonucleic acid (RNA), other species of RNA and protein.
Other researchers have reported similar findings over the last couple of years. Microvesicles have been known for over 40 years and have often been considered irrelevant, says an RIH release. Aliotta concludes: "We are now recognising the relevance of microvesicles - they are important mediators of cell-to-cell communication." Their paper is slated for publication in the March edition of Experimental and is now available online. IANS
