The outer membrane of exosome is abundant of cholesterol, sphingolipids, ceramides, glycolipids GM3 and long-saturated fatty acid-based glycerophospholipid chains, which play an important role in the cellular microenvironment. It is widely distributed in various body fluids. Similar conserved proteins such as MHC I, heat shock protein, four transmembrane protein (CD9, CD63, CD81, Alix, Tsg 101), integrin, cytoskeleton protein, and some biological different cells. These proteins are also called exosomes markers. The exosomes contain biological information, such as cholesterol, protein, and mRNA.
