Join us as Master of Science in Applied Life Sciences student Jonalyn Herce speaks about understanding the passage of exosomes through the blood brain barrier.
“Through heterochronic blood exchange in a murine model, a decline in hippocampal performance was observed in a young mouse who received old blood. In an effort to understand what blood factors are associated with this decline, penetration across the blood brain barrier (BBB) will be explored. Moreover, exosomes participate in intercellular communication and appear to be rich within red blood cells (RBC). RBC secreted exosomes or soluble exosomes in blood will be examined for their capability of passage through the BBB.”
