Nanoparticles Get Help from Cell-Permeable Peptides

Some cell-permeable peptides are able to carry cargos across cell membrane even without any covalent links.  Biotinylated peptides, including L- and D-TAT peptides made by LifeTein were used in this study to show that two types of cell surface receptors, heparan sulfate proteoglycans and Neuropilin-1, play critical roles in the delivery of silver-based nanoparticles into cells by cell-permeable peptides.
