• Zeng Z. (2018) Cancer-derived exosomal miR-25-3p promotes pre-metastatic niche formation by inducing vascular permeability and angiogenesis. Nature Communications 9(1), 5395.

The mechanisms underlying pre-metastatic niche formation by cancer derived exosomes is unclear. Here they show that colorectal cancer (CRC) derived exosomal miR-25-3p promotes vascular leakiness and angiogenesis, CRC metastasis, and is upregulated in CRC pateints with metastasis, and suggest miR-25-3p as a biomarker for CRC metastasis.
