Summary: Tumor‑derived microvesicles (TMVs) interact with cells within the immune system. In the present study, R. Szatanek with co-workers have studied the effects of autologous‑TMVs (auto‑TMVs) on gene expression. Chemotaxis, intercellular signaling and cellular metabolism were examined in cells of the gastric cancer (GC) cell line. Authors have used HoloMonitor M4 to perform chemotaxis assay and showed that Auto-TVMs led to 75 gene overexpression and 96 gene underexpression, which affect, among others, chemotaxis.

Keywords: HoloMonitor M4, chemotaxis, tumor‑derived microvesicles, gastric cancer, extracellular vesicles
