Latest Cell penetrating peptide Stories
For the first time, researchers have designed and created a membrane-bounded vesicle formed entirely of peptides -- molecules made up of amino acids, the building blocks of protein.
Cell-penetrating peptides, such as the HIV TAT peptide, are able to enter cells using a number of mechanisms, from direct entry to endocytosis, a process by which cells internalize molecules by engulfing them.
AVI BioPharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVII) today reported financial results for the three and six months ending June 30, 2008.
Scientists have known for more than a decade that a protein associated with the HIV virus is good at crossing cell membranes, but they didnâ€™t know how it worked. A multidisciplinary team from the University of Illinois has solved the mystery, and their findings could improve the design of therapeutic agents that cross a variety of membrane types.
