Exosome: A Novel Therapy for Dental Disorders

Exosome: A Novel Therapy for Dental Disorders

Exosomes are tiny vesicles with a diameter of 30 nm to 100 nm that are produced by cells in an organism through cytosolization into multivesicular vesicles and released into the extracellular environment through cell membrane fusion [1]. They contain functional proteins, mRNAs, microRNAs, and other substances and are primarily in charge of transferring information and material between cells [2]. This vesicular vesicle was formerly thought to represent some pointless cell secretion and detritus [3]. The exosome has emerged as a popular topic for research in recent years as an increasing number of studies have revealed that it can perform a variety of biological functions.

Formation and Working Mechanism of Exosomes

Exosomes can be found in a variety of cell types, including those from plants, animals, and humans. Almost every type of cell in the human body has the ability to secrete exosomes, which are widely dispersed in a variety of bodily fluids and carry a variety of proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, etc. [4]

Formation Process
1) Cell membrane invagination
2) Outgrowth to form multivesicular bodies
3) Release

Exosome: A Novel Therapy for Dental Diseases

Recent research indicates that exosomes have the ability to control the growth of teeth, bone, salivary glands, and other tissues. They can also aid in the regeneration of periodontal and dental pulp tissues as well as the healing of maxillofacial tissues that have been damaged by trauma.

Li et al. found that exosomes of osteogenesis-induced ADSCs loaded on polylactic-hydroxyglycolic acid copolymers (PLGA) wrapped with polydopamine-coated (PLGA) scaffolds were found to significantly speed up the development of new bone at cranial defects in mice and to successfully construct cell-free tissue-engineered bone [5].

Huang et al. found that exosomes extracted from the two cultures could be endocytosed by dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) and human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSC) in a dose-dependent manner, activated the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway, and promoted osteogenic differentiation [6].

Mohammed et al. discovered that, in the teeth of rats with experimental periodontitis, exosomes secreted by murine ADSCs in conjunction with subgingival scraping and root planning decreased local inflammatory cells and promoted the regeneration of odontoid bone, alveolar bone, periodontal fibers, and blood vessels. This shows that exosomes may be utilized in conjunction with nonsurgical periodontal therapy to encourage the regeneration of periodontal tissue. [7]
