Abstract

During injury, mitogenic signals from apoptotic cells may compensate for cell loss by promoting organ homeostasis and regeneration. A distinct type of early apoptotic extracellular vesicle with specific mitogenic activity has been identified. The detection of these vesicles in damaged mouse glomeruli highlights their possible role in response to renal injury.
