Platelets deliver small packages of genetic function

Semple, John W LU (2013) In Blood 122(2). p.6-155
Abstract

In this issue of Blood, Laffont et al have identified a type of delivery system by platelets in the form of platelet microparticles delivering functional microRNA to endothelial cells. The delivery, it appears, may be a relatively novel process of regulation of gene expression in endothelial cells and potentially other nucleated cells of the body.
