Accession
GO:0070062
Name
extracellular exosome
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
exosome, extracellular vesicular exosome
Definition
A membrane-bounded vesicle that is released into the extracellular region by fusion of the limiting endosomal membrane of a multivesicular body with the plasma membrane. Extracellular exosomes, also simply called exosomes, have a diameter of about 40-100 nm.
