Sammanfattning : Cell-penetrating peptides are able to bind and carry various therapeutic agents including oligonucleotides into cells for a therapeutic effect. The aim of the cell-penetrating peptide research field is to produce a simple, safe and potent delivery platform for intracellular therapy and more especially for gene therapy. LÄS MER
2. In-silico design of peptide-based transfection systems, in-vitro validation, and up-take pathways investigation
Sammanfattning : Cell-penetrating peptide-based transfection systems (PBTS) are a promising group of drug delivery vectors. Cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) are short cationic peptides that are able of transporting cell non-permeant cargos into different cell types. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Oligonucleotide-based drugs hold great promise for the treatment of many types of diseases, ranging from genetic disorders to viral infections and cancer. The problem is that efficient delivery across the cell membrane is required for oligonucleotides to have their desired effect. Cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) provide a solution to this problem.

Sammanfattning : Crossing the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a great challenge for delivery of highly charged macromolecules such as nucleic acids and proteins to the brain. Cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) are promising vectors to deliver various cargoes ranging from small molecules to large molecules such as antibodies, proteins, and nucleic acids. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Cell-penetrating peptides are peptides capable of translocating the cellular membrane and entering the cell, either alone or together with a cargo. Potential applications of cell-penetrating peptides include drug delivery and gene therapy. LÄS MER
