UC Heart, Lung and Vascular Institute Seminar Series
Cardiac Exosomes: Good or Bad?
Department of Pharmacology and Cell Biophysics
University of Cincinnati College of Medicine
Description: To make the heart work effectively, it is imperative to have a well-controlled communication system among the different types of cells. One of the most important ways that the heart regulates itself is by the use of extracellular vesicles, more specifically, exosomes. This talk will summarize recent findings on the role of exosomes in stress/disease-induced cardiac remodeling and discuss how to epigenetically reprogram exosome contents in host cells which makes them beneficial for the heart.
