Extracellular vesicles have been shown to regulate intercellular signaling by transmitting RNA materials such as mRNA, microRNA and snRNA. This phenomenon implies extracellular RNA (exRNA) may partially reflect cellular content within the human body and may show disease specific variation.  As such, exRNA profiles have great potential as disease biomarkers.  While high-throughput sequencing technology offers a potentially sensitive means to characterize and quantify exRNA, there is a lack of a understanding of the efficacy and reliability of commercial kits for extracellular RNA sequencing. Here, we aim to optimize protocols for sequencing extracellular RNA from human samples.
