Abstract:



We here describe a new strategy for the delivery of oligonucleotides to cells that is based on the use of a short peptide containing three functional units: a membrane-penetrating segment, a DNA-binding domain and a cell-localization sequence. The designed vector binds strongly to oligonucleotides and has membrane-perturbing abilities in vitro. This type of multi-functional device may be a powerful tool to achieve efficient delivery of genetic drugs in vivo.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
