Article
RNA guided CRISPR genome editing systems can make specific changes to the genomes of mammalian cells and have the potential to treat a range of diseases including those that can be addressed by editing hepatocytes. Attempts to edit the liver in vivo have relied almost exclusively on the Cas9 nucleases derived from the bacteria S treptococcus pyogen...

Significance Retrotransposons are noninfectious, mobile genetic elements that proliferate in host genomes via an RNA intermediate that is copied into DNA by a reverse transcriptase (RT) enzyme. RTs are important for biotechnological applications involving information capture from RNA since RNA is first converted into complementary DNA for detection...
Preprint
Non-long terminal repeat (non-LTR) and group II intron retroelements encode reverse transcriptases (RTs) that copy the retroelement transcript directly into host cell DNA, often at specific target sites. Biochemical characterization of these enzymes has been limited by recombinant expression and purification challenges, hampering understanding of t...
Article
Small extracellular vesicles (sEVs) encompass a variety of distinct vesicles that are secreted to the extracellular space. Many methodologies currently used for EV isolation (e.g., differential ultracentrifugation concluding in a high-speed pellet, precipitation by macromolecular crowding agents or size excusion chromatography-SEC) do not fractiona...

Full-text available
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) encompass a variety of vesicles secreted into the extracellular space. EVs have been implicated in promoting tumor metastasis, but the molecular composition of tumor-derived EV sub-types and the mechanisms by which molecules are sorted into EVs remain mostly unknown. We report the separation of two small EV sub-populati...

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) encompass a variety of vesicles secreted into the extracellular space. EVs have been implicated in promoting tumor metastasis, but the molecular composition of tumor derived EV subtypes and the mechanisms by which molecules are sorted into EVs remain mostly unknown. We report the separation of two EV sub-populations fro...

Full-text available
A great deal of interest has developed around evidence of a role for or a marker of extracellular vesicles (EVs)/exosomes and metastatic cancer. However, the strength of a functional connection between EVs and cancer has been hampered by inadequate characterization of EVs and a lack of mechanistic details describing the means by which molecular con...

Significance Cells release vesicles containing selectively packaged cargo, including RNA, into the extracellular environment. Prior studies have identified RNA inside extracellular vesicles (EVs), but due to limitations of conventional sequencing methods, highly structured and posttranscriptionally modified RNA species were not effectively captured...
Preprint
RNA is secreted from cells enclosed within extracellular vesicles (EVs). Defining the RNA composition of EVs is challenging due to their co-isolation with contaminants, a lack of knowledge of the mechanisms of RNA sorting into EVs and limitations of conventional RNA-seq methods. Here we present our observations using thermostable group II intron re...
Data
miRNA counts from cell and exosomes libraries using miRdeep2.Number of reads mapped to each miRNA annotated in miRBase version 21 using the quantifier program of the miRdeep2 package. Reads per million miRNA mapped reads (RPM) were calculated and the quotient was taken to determine enrichment in exosomes.DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.7554/eLife.19276.0...
Data
Mapping statistics for small RNA-seq libraries to the human genome (hg19).Reads were processed (see Materials and methods) and mapped to the human genome (hg19) using Bowtie 2. Total counts for reads mapped to the genome, to rRNA and to miRNA (using miRdeep2 - see Materials and methods) are shown. Percent of total reads are shown in parenthesis.DOI...

Exosomes are small vesicles that are secreted from metazoan cells and may convey selected membrane proteins and small RNAs to target cells for the control of cell migration, development and metastasis. To study the mechanisms of RNA packaging into exosomes, we devised a purification scheme based on the membrane marker CD63 to isolate a single exoso...

Coxiella burnetii is an intracellular pathogen that replicates in a lysosome-derived vacuole. The molecular mechanisms used by this bacterium to create a pathogen-occupied vacuole remain largely unknown. Here, we conducted a visual screen on an arrayed library of C. burnetii NMII transposon insertion mutants to identify genes required for biogenesi...
