Exosome Lipidomics Service

Lipids are an essential composition of exosomal membranes. Exosomes contain several unique lipids compared with recipient cells, but these lipid compositions remain largely unknown. Exosome lipidomics analysis may help you identify components in exosomal lipids during disease progression, which may facilitate novel biomarker discovery for diseases diagnosis and prognosis.

Current research has revealed lipid compositions of urinary exosomes in prostate cancer patients and healthy controls by using a high-throughput mass spectrometry method for quantitative lipidomics analysis. This study is the first to show the potential use of exosomal lipid species in urine as prostate cancer biomarkers.

LDH Cytotoxicity Assay Figure 3 Comparison of molecular lipids in urinary exosomes from prostate cancer patients and healthy controls. Percent difference for each molecular lipid. Red and blue colors indicate that the increase or decrease of a molecular lipid, respectively, in the prostate cancer versus the control group. The relative difference is encoded by color intensity.
