This is an article published in Frontiers in Immunology, as part of the Research Topic:
Extracellular Vesicles in Inflammatory Responses and Inflammation-Associated
Diseases. Researchers from the Dept of Cellular Biology and Immunology, Institute of
Parasitology and Biomedicine Lopez-Neyra (IPBLN), CSIC, Granada, present a study
of extracellular vesicles (EV). They analyze the protein composition, protein
abundance, and functional clustering of EV released by peritoneal exudate cells (PECs)
in the pristane experimental lupus model, to identify predictive or diagnostic biomarkers
that might discriminate the autoimmune process in lupus from inflammatory reactions
and/or normal physiological processes.
In this work collaborated Researchers from the Units of Proteomics, Microscopy and
Flow Cytometry of IPBLN-CSIC, Granada; from the Faculty of Physical Sciences, and
Dept of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology III, and Immunology of UGR, Granada; from
the Dept of Microbiology, UAB, Birmingham, AL, USA; and from the IBBTEC-CSIC,
University of Cantabria.
