JE.I

THE EMERGING ROLE OF EXTRACELLULAR VESICLES IN REPRODUCTION:
FROM GAMETOGENESIS TO INTERACTION WITH IMMUNE SYSTEM

September 11

Chairs: Emily SCHIFANO, Annalisa REDEGHIERI & Luciana DINI, Sapienza University of Rome
In collaboration with

Extracellular vesicles (EVs), that are produced from all cells that have been studied to date, are membrane- bound complexes secreted from cells under both physiological and pathological conditions. EV research is a rapidly evolving and expanding field, and it appears that all biological fluids contain very large numbers of EVs. EVs act as messengers for cell–cell communication and signalling due to their cargo, containing proteins, nucleic acids and lipids; recently they are also known to have roles in several reproductive processes. This workshop is aimed to discuss the role of EVs throughout reproduction (not only in humans), starting with the paternal and maternal gametes, followed by the establishment and continuation of successful pregnancies, with focus on the interaction of EVs with the maternal immune system and in various reproductive promotion and disorders.
