Featured article: A retro-inverso cell-penetrating peptide for siRNA delivery

Large molecular weight siRNAs have potential to control gene expression, particularly in cancer. However, therapuetic approaches are hampered by their low permeability into cells. Vaissière and colleagues report the development of a new cell penetrating peptide that associates with siRNA in in a stable peptide-based nanoparticle and facilitiates entry into cells. Read more.
