Ods: Omental fat exosomes were created from fresh human omental fat specimens. Proliferation, migration, invasion and chemoresistance were made use of to evaluate the phenotypic behaviour of omental-exosomes treated gastric cancer cells. Using a extensive cytokine array, we identified the proteome of omental-exosomes. Exosomal miRNAs were profiled applying NanoString technology. A xenograft model wasJOURNAL OF EXTRACELLULAR VESICLES Universidade da Coru . Xubias de Arriba, 84 15006 A Coru , Spain., A Coru , SpainIntroduction: Connexin43 (Cx43), a transmembrane protein involved in cell communication and signalling, has been described as a tumour suppressor aspect in melanoma, nonetheless its role in illness progression remains under debate. Extracellular vesicles (EVs) released by melanoma cells present signals and “educate” distant cells. The presence of Cx43 in EVs gives these particles with an further capacity to exchange little molecules for example RNAs, metabolites or ions with target cells by way of gap junction channels (GJs).In this study, we’ve investigated the part of exosomal Cx43 in metastatic melanoma. Strategies: Protein levels and activity had been studied by western-blot, immunofluorescence, colony formation and proliferation and migration assays. GJIC by Scrape loading. EVs were isolated by ultracentrifugation and analysed applying the NanoSight and electron microscopy. Their content was analysed by mass spectrometry (MS) and by RNA-seq. Benefits: Low levels and SUMOylated Cx43 in BRAFmutant human melanoma cells was associated with cytoplasmic distribution and low incidence of dye coupling (GJIC). Ectopic Cx43 gene expression usingvectors restored Cx43 membrane localization, raised GJIC and elevated Cx43 inside the EVs. EVs isolated from BRAF-mutant melanoma cells overexpressing Cx43 only contains the non-SUMOylated Cx43. When different melanoma cell lines were exposed to exosomes containing Cx43, these EVs substantially decreased cell proliferation and blocked colonies growth. The effect of exosomal Cx43 was compared to the overexpression on the protein. The presence of Cx43 in EVs substantially enhanced the sensitivity of BRAF-mutant metastatic melanoma to drugs including BRAF/MEK inhibitors. The RNA and proteomic element identified by RNA-Seq and MS revealed that exosomal Cx43 by way of its Rhodopsin-like receptors Proteins Purity & Documentation scaffolding function may very well be involved in the recruitment of CD70 Proteins site proteins and little RNAs towards the EVs switching the messages and hence the part of these EVs in melanoma. Summary/Conclusion: Our outcomes indicate that exosomal particles containing Cx43 are potent vehicles to combat metastatic melanoma. Additional understanding of the function of Cx43 in EVs may have implications for the development of new therapeutic strategies. As an illustration, we demonstrated their capability as drug carriers to combat metastasic melanoma when these vesicles include Cx43.ISEV2019 ABSTRACT BOOKSymposium Session four: EV Biogenesis I Chairs: Nobuyoshi Kosaka; Clotilde Th y Place: Level B1, Hall A 11:002:OT04.Linking the trafficking of CD63 and CD9 to their secretion mechanisms into extracellular vesicles Mathilde Mathieua, JosIgnacio Valenzuelab, Mathieu Maurina, Mabel Jouvea, Nathalie Nevoa, Ga le Boncompaina, Franck Perezb and Clotilde Theryca Institut Curie, INSERM U932, Paris, France; bInstitut Curie, umr144, Paris, France; 3Institue Curie, Paris, Franceobserved improved secretion of CD63+ but not CD9 + EVs.
