Abstract

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are structures released by a variety of cells from all kingdoms of life. EVs are typically involved in communication between tissues and organs, between distinct organisms, or inside microbial communities. The plasticity of these structures is reflected in the range of biological effects they are able to induce or inhibit. The study of fungal EVs is relatively new with the first report in 2007, but investigators have already demonstrated in several model systems that fungal EVs significantly modulate the host immune system and that the immunogenic materials in EV can be harnessed as vaccination platforms. This chapter describes the two main procedures used to isolate EVs from an emerging pathogenic fungus, Candida auris.
