Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are nano and submicron sized bioparticles produced by most of the cells in our body. They contain biological information such as ribonucleic acid and proteins which can be transferred to not only local cells, but also to remote cells since they circulate through most of the body fluids such as blood and urine. Two major subtypes of EVs – exosomes and microvesicles- carry different types of biomolecules from their parental cells due to their different biogenesis and secretion origin in the cell.
