Anti-Apoptotic and Pro-Survival Effect of CML-Derived Exosomes on Gene Expression. (a) Real-time PCR analysis shows that treatment of LAMA84 with LAMA84 exosomes up to 1 week increases the mRNA expression of the anti-apoptotic genes survivin, BCL-xl, and BCL-w, while it decreases the mRNA levels of the pro-apoptotic genes BAD, BAX and PUMA. (b) Similar effects were observed in samples from mice treated with exosomes compared with control mice, treated with PBS (black bar). Asteriks indicate a significant difference in comparison to control (Ctrl) (**p ≤ 0.01; *** p ≤ 0.001).
