Abstract: Tetraspanins are membranes proteins involved in every aspect of cell-cell interaction, including adhesion, fusion, differentiation and extracellular vesicle production. As the principal components of a type of membrane microdomain, they have therapeutic and diagnostic potential in a wide range of diseases and new imaging techniques are beginning to reveal the fine detail of these microdomains and their biophysical properties. In this Focussed Meeting, the roles of tetraspanins in cancer, development, infection and immunity will be highlighted. In addition, the role of tetraspanins in the formation and function of extracellular vesicles will be explored and an optional half-day workshop will be held, providing hands-on experience of vesicle purification and characterisation.
