Ocean Ridge Biosciences (ORB) is pleased to announce its contribution to a recent publication in volume 42 issue 11 of Nucleic Acids Research, entitled "Exosomes in human semen carry a distinctive repertoire of small non-coding RNAs with potential regulatory functions". The article reveals potential mechanisms by which semen interferes with immune responses in the recipient female genital tract which will be helpful in devising better strategies that prevent and treat sexually transmitted infections, including vaccination against HIV. Exosomes, microvesicles ranging in size from 30-200 nanometers, have been characterized in a wide variety of biofluids and have been shown to be important for intracellular signaling and normal physiology. This publication by Dr. Lucia Vojtech and coworkers of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Washington, Seattle, is the first to describe the RNA content of exosomes derived from human semen.
