Abstract

To harmoniously coordinate the activities of all its different cell types, a multicellular organism critically depends on intercellular communication. One recently discovered mode of intercellular cross-talk is based on the exchange of "extracellular vesicles" (EVs). EVs are nano-sized heterogeneous lipid bilayer vesicles enriched in a variety of biomolecules that mediate short- and long-distance communication between different cells, and between cells and their environment. Numerous studies have demonstrated important aspects pertaining to the dynamics of their release, their uptake, and sub-cellular fate and roles in vitro. However, to demonstrate these and other aspects of EV biology in a relevant, fully physiological context in vivo remains challenging. In this review we analyze the state of the art of EV imaging in vivo, focusing in particular on zebrafish as a promising model to visualize, study, and characterize endogenous EVs in real-time and expand our understanding of EV biology at cellular and systems level.
