Scientists discover new nanoparticle, dubbed exomeres

A new cellular messenger discovered by Weill Cornell Medicine scientists may help reveal how cancer cells co-opt the body's intercellular delivery service to spread to new locations in the body. In a paper published Feb. 19 in Nature Cell Biology , the scientists show that a cutting-edge technique called asymmetric flow field-flow fractionation can efficiently sort nano-sized particles, called exosomes, that are secreted by cancer cells and contain DNA, RNA, fats and proteins.
