Abstract
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are single-membrane vesicles that play an essential role in long-range (show more...)Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are single-membrane vesicles that play an essential role in long-range intercellular communications. EV investigation has been explored largely through cell-culture systems, but it remains unclear how physiological EVs exert homeostatic or pathological functions in vivo. Here, we report that lung EVs promote chemotaxis of neutrophils in bone marrow through delivery of double stranded DNA (dsDNA). We have identified and characterized EVs containing dsDNA collected from both human and murine lung tissues using newly developed approaches. Our analysis of EV proteomics together with single-cell RNA sequencing data reveals that type II alveolar epithelial cells are the main source of the lung EVs. Furthermore, we demonstrate that the lung EVs accumulate in bone marrow and enhance neutrophil recruitment under inflammation conditions. Moreover, lung EV-DNA stimulates neutrophils to release the chemokines CXCL1 and CXCL2 via DNA-TLR9 signalling. Our findings establish a molecular basis of lung EVs in enhancement of host immune response to bacterial infection and provide new insights into understanding of vesicle-mediated systematic communications.

Nevertheless, identification of native EV and corresponding cell platform(s) suitable for therapeutic application, is still a challenge. Here, EV are isolated from key stages of the human induced pluripotent stem cell-cardiomyocyte (hiPSC-CM) differentiation and maturation, i.e., from hiPSC (hiPSC-EV), cardiac progenitors, immature and mature cardiomyocytes, with the aim of identifying a promising cell biofactory for EV production, and pinpoint the genetic signatures of bioactive EV. EV secreted by hiPSC and cardiac derivatives show a typical size distribution profile and the expression of specific EV markers. Bioactivity assays show increased tube formation and migration in HUVEC treated with hiPSC-EV compared to EV from committed cell populations. hiPSC-EV also significantly increase cell cycle activity of hiPSC-CM. Global miRNA expression profiles, obtained by small RNA-seq analysis, corroborate an EV-miRNA pattern indicative of stem cell to cardiomyocyte specification, confirming that hiPSC-EV are enriched in pluripotency-associated miRNA with higher in vitro pro-angiogenic and pro-proliferative properties. In particular, a stemness maintenance miRNA cluster upregulated in hiPSC-EV targets the PTEN/PI3K/AKT pathway, involved in cell proliferation and survival. Overall, the findings validate hiPSC as cell biofactories for EV production for cardiac regenerative applications. (hide)

Here, EV are isolated from key stages of the human induced pluripotent stem cell-cardiomyocyte (hiPSC-CM) differentiation and maturation, i.e., from hiPSC (hiPSC-EV), cardiac progenitors, immature and mature cardiomyocytes, with the aim of identifying a promising cell biofactory for EV production, and pinpoint the genetic signatures of bioactive EV. EV secreted by hiPSC and cardiac derivatives show a typical size distribution profile and the expression of specific EV markers. Bioactivity assays show increased tube formation and migration in HUVEC treated with hiPSC-EV compared to EV from committed cell populations. hiPSC-EV also significantly increase cell cycle activity of hiPSC-CM. Global miRNA expression profiles, obtained by small RNA-seq analysis, corroborate an EV-miRNA pattern indicative of stem cell to cardiomyocyte specification, confirming that hiPSC-EV are enriched in pluripotency-associated miRNA with higher in vitro pro-angiogenic and pro-proliferative properties. In particular, a stemness maintenance miRNA cluster upregulated in hiPSC-EV targets the PTEN/PI3K/AKT pathway, involved in cell proliferation and survival. Overall, the findings validate hiPSC as cell biofactories for EV production for cardiac regenerative applications. (hide)

Our group previously documented the therapeutic potential of novel progenitor cell populations from the non-scarring buccal mucosa. These Oral Mucosa Lamina Propria-Progenitor Cells (OMLP-PCs) are multipotent, immunosuppressive, and antibacterial. Small extracellular vesicles (sEVs) may play important roles in stem cell-mediated repair in varied settings/ hence, we investigated sEVs from this source for wound repair. We created an hTERT immortalized OMLP-PC line (OMLP-PCL) and confirmed retention of morphology, lineage plasticity, surface markers, and functional properties. sEVs isolated from OMLP-PCL were analyzed by nanoparticle tracking analysis, Cryo-EM and flow cytometry. Compared to bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (BM-MSC) sEVs, OMLP-PCL sEVs were more potent at driving wound healing functions, including cell proliferation and wound repopulation and downregulated myofibroblast formation. A reduced scarring potential was further demonstrated in a preclinical in vivo model. Manipulation of OMLP-PCL sEVs may provide novel options for non-scarring wound healing in clinical settings.

Abstract
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are cell-derived structures surrounded by a lipid bilayer that carry RN (show more...)Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are cell-derived structures surrounded by a lipid bilayer that carry RNA and DNA as potential templates for molecular diagnostics, e.g., in cancer genotyping. While it has been established that DNA templates appear on the outside of EVs, no consensus exists on which nucleic acid species inside small EVs (</ 200 nm, sEVs) are sufficiently abundant and accessible for developing genotyping protocols. We investigated this by extracting total intravesicular nucleic acid content from sEVs isolated from the conditioned cell medium of the human NCI-H1975 cell line containing the epidermal growth factor () gene mutation T790M as a model system for non-small cell lung cancer. We observed that mainly short genomic DNA (</ 35-100 bp) present in the sEVs served as a template. Using qEV size exclusion chromatography (SEC), significantly lower yield and higher purity of isolated sEV fractions were obtained as compared to exoEasy membrane affinity purification and ultracentrifugation. Nevertheless, we detected the T790M mutation in the sEVs' lumen with similar sensitivity using digital PCR. When applying SEC-based sEV separation prior to cell-free DNA extraction on spiked human plasma samples, we found significantly higher mutant allele frequencies as compared to standard cell-free DNA extraction, which in part was due to co-purification of circulating tumor DNA. We conclude that intravesicular genomic DNA can be exploited next to ctDNA to enhance T790M mutation detection sensitivity by adding a fast and easy-to-use sEV separation method, such as SEC, upstream of standard clinical cell-free DNA workflows.

Abstract
Extracellular vesicles (EV) are an attractive therapy to boost cardiac regeneration. Nevertheless, i (show more...)Extracellular vesicles (EV) are an attractive therapy to boost cardiac regeneration. Nevertheless, identification of native EV and corresponding cell platform(s) suitable for therapeutic application, is still a challenge. Here, EV are isolated from key stages of the human induced pluripotent stem cell-cardiomyocyte (hiPSC-CM) differentiation and maturation, i.e., from hiPSC (hiPSC-EV), cardiac progenitors, immature and mature cardiomyocytes, with the aim of identifying a promising cell biofactory for EV production, and pinpoint the genetic signatures of bioactive EV. EV secreted by hiPSC and cardiac derivatives show a typical size distribution profile and the expression of specific EV markers. Bioactivity assays show increased tube formation and migration in HUVEC treated with hiPSC-EV compared to EV from committed cell populations. hiPSC-EV also significantly increase cell cycle activity of hiPSC-CM. Global miRNA expression profiles, obtained by small RNA-seq analysis, corroborate an EV-miRNA pattern indicative of stem cell to cardiomyocyte specification, confirming that hiPSC-EV are enriched in pluripotency-associated miRNA with higher in vitro pro-angiogenic and pro-proliferative properties. In particular, a stemness maintenance miRNA cluster upregulated in hiPSC-EV targets the PTEN/PI3K/AKT pathway, involved in cell proliferation and survival. Overall, the findings validate hiPSC as cell biofactories for EV production for cardiac regenerative applications. (hide)

A deficit in AT function leads to AT qualitative deficiency, challenging to diagnose. Here we report that active AT may travel physiosorbed on the surface of plasma extracellular vesicles (EVs), contributing to form the “EV-protein corona.” The corona is enriched in specific AT glycoforms, thus suggesting glycosylation to play a key role in AT partitioning between EVs and plasma. Differences in AT glycoform composition of the corona of EVs separated from plasma of healthy and AT qualitative deficiency-affected subjects were also noticed. This suggests deconstructing the plasma into its nanostructured components, as EVs, could suggest novel directions to unravel pathophysiological mechanisms. (hide)

Abstract
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are lipid-based nanosized particles that convey biological material fro (show more...)Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are lipid-based nanosized particles that convey biological material from donor to recipient cells. EVs play key roles in glioblastoma progression because glioblastoma stem-like cells (GSCs) release pro-oncogenic, pro-angiogenic, and pro-inflammatory EVs. However, the molecular basis of EV release remains poorly understood. Here, we report the identification of the pseudokinase MLKL, a crucial effector of cell death by necroptosis, as a regulator of the constitutive secretion of EVs in GSCs. We find that genetic, protein, and pharmacological targeting of MLKL alters intracellular trafficking and EV release, and reduces GSC expansion. Nevertheless, this function ascribed to MLKL appears independent of its role during necroptosis. In vivo, pharmacological inhibition of MLKL reduces the tumor burden and the level of plasmatic EVs. This work highlights the necroptosis-independent role of MLKL in vesicle release and suggests that interfering with EVs is a promising therapeutic option to sensitize glioblastoma cells. (hide)

While it has been established that DNA templates appear on the outside of EVs, no consensus exists on which nucleic acid species inside small EVs (</ 200 nm, sEVs) are sufficiently abundant and accessible for developing genotyping protocols. We investigated this by extracting total intravesicular nucleic acid content from sEVs isolated from the conditioned cell medium of the human NCI-H1975 cell line containing the epidermal growth factor () gene mutation T790M as a model system for non-small cell lung cancer. We observed that mainly short genomic DNA (</ 35-100 bp) present in the sEVs served as a template. Using qEV size exclusion chromatography (SEC), significantly lower yield and higher purity of isolated sEV fractions were obtained as compared to exoEasy membrane affinity purification and ultracentrifugation. Nevertheless, we detected the T790M mutation in the sEVs' lumen with similar sensitivity using digital PCR. When applying SEC-based sEV separation prior to cell-free DNA extraction on spiked human plasma samples, we found significantly higher mutant allele frequencies as compared to standard cell-free DNA extraction, which in part was due to co-purification of circulating tumor DNA. We conclude that intravesicular genomic DNA can be exploited next to ctDNA to enhance T790M mutation detection sensitivity by adding a fast and easy-to-use sEV separation method, such as SEC, upstream of standard clinical cell-free DNA workflows.

While it has been established that DNA templates appear on the outside of EVs, no consensus exists on which nucleic acid species inside small EVs (</ 200 nm, sEVs) are sufficiently abundant and accessible for developing genotyping protocols. We investigated this by extracting total intravesicular nucleic acid content from sEVs isolated from the conditioned cell medium of the human NCI-H1975 cell line containing the epidermal growth factor () gene mutation T790M as a model system for non-small cell lung cancer. We observed that mainly short genomic DNA (</ 35-100 bp) present in the sEVs served as a template. Using qEV size exclusion chromatography (SEC), significantly lower yield and higher purity of isolated sEV fractions were obtained as compared to exoEasy membrane affinity purification and ultracentrifugation. Nevertheless, we detected the T790M mutation in the sEVs' lumen with similar sensitivity using digital PCR. When applying SEC-based sEV separation prior to cell-free DNA extraction on spiked human plasma samples, we found significantly higher mutant allele frequencies as compared to standard cell-free DNA extraction, which in part was due to co-purification of circulating tumor DNA. We conclude that intravesicular genomic DNA can be exploited next to ctDNA to enhance T790M mutation detection sensitivity by adding a fast and easy-to-use sEV separation method, such as SEC, upstream of standard clinical cell-free DNA workflows.

Macrophages are known to release extracellular vesicles in response to different stimuli, and changes in their size, number, and composition may provide important insights into the responses induced. Macrophages are also known to be highly efficient in clearing nanoparticles, when in contact with them, and in triggering the immune system. However, little is known about how the nature and composition of the vesicles released by these cells may vary upon nanoparticle exposure. In order to study this, in this work, alveolar-like macrophages were exposed to a panel of nanoparticles with varying surface and composition, including amino-modified and carboxylated polystyrene and plain silica. We previously showed that these nanoparticles induced very different responses in these cells. Here, experimental conditions were carefully tuned in order to separate the extracellular vesicles released by the macrophages several hours after exposure to sub-toxic concentrations of the same nanoparticles. After separation, different methods, including high-sensitivity flow cytometry, TEM imaging, Western blotting, and nanoparticle tracking analysis, were combined in order to characterize the extracellular vesicles. Finally, proteomics was used to determine their composition and how it varied upon exposure to the different nanoparticles. Our results show that depending on the nanoparticles' properties. The macrophages produced extracellular vesicles of varying number, size, and protein composition. This indicates that macrophages release specific signals in response to nanoparticles and overall suggests that extracellular vesicles can reflect subtle responses to nanoparticles and nanoparticle impact on intercellular communication.

Abstract
Although cancer-derived extracellular vesicles (cEVs) are thought to play a pivotal role in promotin (show more...)Although cancer-derived extracellular vesicles (cEVs) are thought to play a pivotal role in promoting cancer progression events, their precise effect on neighbouring normal cells is unknown. In this study, we investigated the impact of pancreatic cancer ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) derived EVs on recipient non-tumourigenic pancreatic normal epithelial cells upon internalization. We demonstrate that cEVs are readily internalized and induce endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and the unfolded protein response (UPR) in treated normal pancreatic epithelial cells within 24 h. We further show that PDAC cEVs increase cell proliferation, migration, and invasion and that these changes are regulated at least in part, by the UPR mediator DDIT3. Subsequently, these cells release several inflammatory cytokines. Leveraging a layered multi-omics approach, we analysed EV cargo from a panel of six PDAC and two normal pancreas cell lines, using multiple EV isolation methods. We found that cEVs were enriched for an array of biomolecules which can induce or regulate ER stress and the UPR, including palmitic acid, sphingomyelins, metabolic regulators of tRNA charging and proteins which regulate trafficking and degradation. We further show that palmitic acid, at doses relevant to those found in cEVs, is sufficient to induce ER stress in normal pancreas cells. These results suggest that cEV cargo packaging may be designed to disseminate proliferative and invasive characteristics upon internalization by distant recipient normal cells, hitherto unreported. This study is among the first to highlight a major role for PDAC cEVs to induce stress in treated normal pancreas cells that may modulate a systemic response leading to altered phenotypes. These findings highlight the importance of EVs in mediating disease aetiology and open potential areas of investigation toward understanding the role of cEV lipids in promoting cell transformation in the surrounding microenvironment.

Leveraging a layered multi-omics approach, we analysed EV cargo from a panel of six PDAC and two normal pancreas cell lines, using multiple EV isolation methods. We found that cEVs were enriched for an array of biomolecules which can induce or regulate ER stress and the UPR, including palmitic acid, sphingomyelins, metabolic regulators of tRNA charging and proteins which regulate trafficking and degradation. We further show that palmitic acid, at doses relevant to those found in cEVs, is sufficient to induce ER stress in normal pancreas cells. These results suggest that cEV cargo packaging may be designed to disseminate proliferative and invasive characteristics upon internalization by distant recipient normal cells, hitherto unreported. This study is among the first to highlight a major role for PDAC cEVs to induce stress in treated normal pancreas cells that may modulate a systemic response leading to altered phenotypes. These findings highlight the importance of EVs in mediating disease aetiology and open potential areas of investigation toward understanding the role of cEV lipids in promoting cell transformation in the surrounding microenvironment.

Abstract
Although cancer-derived extracellular vesicles (cEVs) are thought to play a pivotal role in promotin (show more...)Although cancer-derived extracellular vesicles (cEVs) are thought to play a pivotal role in promoting cancer progression events, their precise effect on neighbouring normal cells is unknown. In this study, we investigated the impact of pancreatic cancer ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) derived EVs on recipient non-tumourigenic pancreatic normal epithelial cells upon internalization. We demonstrate that cEVs are readily internalized and induce endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and the unfolded protein response (UPR) in treated normal pancreatic epithelial cells within 24 h. We further show that PDAC cEVs increase cell proliferation, migration, and invasion and that these changes are regulated at least in part, by the UPR mediator DDIT3. Subsequently, these cells release several inflammatory cytokines. Leveraging a layered multi-omics approach, we analysed EV cargo from a panel of six PDAC and two normal pancreas cell lines, using multiple EV isolation methods.

In order to examine the functional sources of EV for cell-free therapy of ischemic diseases, we compared the functions of EPC-EV and those of Wharton's Jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cell (WJ-EV) in the flap mouse model. Our results demonstrated that in the intravenous injection, EPC-EV, but not WJ-EV, were uptaken by the ischemic tissues. However, EPC-EV showed poor abilities to induce neovascularization and the recovery of ischemic tissues. In addition, compared to EPC-EV, WJ-EV showed a higher ability to rescue the ischemic injury when being locally injected into the mice. In order to induce the secretion of high-functional EPC-EV, EPC were internalized with hypoxic pre-treated WJ-EV, which resulted in a transformed hwEPC. In comparison to EPC, hwEPC showed induced proliferation and upregulation of angiogenic genes and miRNAs and promoted angiogenic ability. Interestingly, hwEPC produced a modified EV (hwEPC-EV) that highly expressed miRNAs related to angiogenesis, such as miR-155, miR-183, and miR-296. Moreover, hwEPC-EV significantly induced the neovascularization of the ischemic tissues which were involved in promoting the proliferation, the expression of VEGF and miR-183, and the angiogenic functions of endothelial cells. Of note, hwEPC-EV were highly uptaken by the ischemic tissues and showed a greater effect with regard to inducing recovery from ischemic injury in the intravenous administration, compared to EPC-EV. Therefore, hwEPC-EV can be considered a functional candidate for cell-free therapy to treat the distal ischemic tissues. (hide)

Abstract
Colorectal cancer (CRC) with a mesenchymal gene expression signature has the greatest propensity for (show more...)Colorectal cancer (CRC) with a mesenchymal gene expression signature has the greatest propensity for distant metastasis and is characterised by the accumulation of cancer-associated fibroblasts in the stroma. We investigated whether the epithelial to mesenchymal transition status of CRC cells influences fibroblast phenotype, with a focus on the transfer of extracellular vesicles (EVs), as a controlled means of cell-cell communication. Epithelial CRC EVs suppressed TGF-β-driven myofibroblast differentiation, whereas mesenchymal CRC EVs did not. This was driven by miR-200 (miR-200a/b/c, -141), which was enriched in epithelial CRC EVs and transferred to recipient fibroblasts. Ectopic miR-200 expression or ZEB1 knockdown, in fibroblasts, similarly suppressed myofibroblast differentiation. Supporting these findings, there was a strong negative correlation between miR-200 and myofibroblastic markers in a cohort of CRC patients in the TCGA dataset. This was replicated in mice, by co-injecting epithelial or mesenchymal CRC cells with fibroblasts and analysing stromal markers of myofibroblastic phenotype. Fibroblasts from epithelial tumours contained more miR-200 and expressed less ACTA2 and FN1 than those from mesenchymal tumours. As such, these data provide a new mechanism for the development of fibroblast heterogeneity in CRC, through EV-mediated transfer of miRNAs, and provide an explanation as to why CRC tumours with greater metastatic potential are CAF rich.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) with a mesenchymal gene expression signature has the greatest propensity for (show more...)Colorectal cancer (CRC) with a mesenchymal gene expression signature has the greatest propensity for distant metastasis and is characterised by the accumulation of cancer-associated fibroblasts in the stroma. We investigated whether the epithelial to mesenchymal transition status of CRC cells influences fibroblast phenotype, with a focus on the transfer of extracellular vesicles (EVs), as a controlled means of cell-cell communication. Epithelial CRC EVs suppressed TGF-β-driven myofibroblast differentiation, whereas mesenchymal CRC EVs did not. This was driven by miR-200 (miR-200a/b/c, -141), which was enriched in epithelial CRC EVs and transferred to recipient fibroblasts. Ectopic miR-200 expression or ZEB1 knockdown, in fibroblasts, similarly suppressed myofibroblast differentiation. Supporting these findings, there was a strong negative correlation between miR-200 and myofibroblastic markers in a cohort of CRC patients in the TCGA dataset. This was replicated in mice, by co-injecting epithelial or mesenchymal CRC cells with fibroblasts and analysing stromal markers of myofibroblastic phenotype. Fibroblasts from epithelial tumours contained more miR-200 and expressed less ACTA2 and FN1 than those from mesenchymal tumours. As such, these data provide a new mechanism for the development of fibroblast heterogeneity in CRC, through EV-mediated transfer of miRNAs, and provide an explanation as to why CRC tumours with greater metastatic potential are CAF rich.
