Targeted delivery using membrane vesicles in prokaryotes

Membrane vesicles (MVs) secreted from microbes play a crucial role in membrane trafficking; however, it has not been fully elucidated how MVs transfer their content to the target microbial cells in the microbial community. We firstly applied the Derjaguin-Landau-Verwey-Overbeek theory, based on physicochemical energies, to elucidate the interaction between MVs and bacterial cells. Additionally, a ligand-receptor relationship has also been observed in MVs and the bacterial surface, and it may effectively deliver the cargo to the target microbial cells. In this mini-review, we highlight the recent progress in microbial interactions using MVs and discuss the mechanism of donor-recipient specific interactions.
