Cover Story (view full-size image): Exosomes comprise a significant class of microvesicular bodies synthesized and secreted by different cell types in many tissues, including brain. Biomolecular cargo in exosomes consist of proteins, lipids, metabolites and microRNAs that reflect the physiological status of the cell-of-origin. The role of exosomes in pathogenesis and disease progression of neurodegenerative disorders is evident from their ability to transport pathogenetic proteins and to communicate signals between different brain cell types. The high sensitivity and specificity of MS/proteomics provides a valuable tool for identifying exosomal biomarker candidates. This review highlights advancements in exosome proteomics and its potential for identifying protein biomarkers for neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. “Image created with BioRender.com”.
