Biogenesis of Outer Membrane Vesicles
The different steps involved in the formation and release of outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) from the parent bacteria as revealed by the experimental evidence and derived models presented by different investigators are discussed. An attempt has been made to develop a unified concept of the biogenesis of OMVs released by different Gram-negative bacteria.
