Helminth extracellular vesicles in host–parasite interactions


Tritten, Lucienne; Geary, Timothy G (2018). Helminth extracellular vesicles in host–parasite interactions. Current Opinion in Microbiology, 46:73-79.

Abstract

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) have been characterized from many species of parasitic helminths, and recent experimental evidence supports important functions for their cargo in host–parasite relationships as immunomodulatory mediators. Here we summarize available data on the effects of parasite-derived EVs, including their protein and/or small RNA contents, on their hosts.
