The recent discovery of new potent therapeutic molecules which do not reach the clinic due to poor delivery and low bioavailability have made the delivery of molecules a keystone in therapeutic development. Several technologies have been designed to improve cellular uptake of therapeutic molecules, including CPPs (cell-penetrating peptides), which represent(More)
Recently, we described a new strategy for the delivery of proteins and peptides into mammalian cells, based on an amphipathic peptide of 21 residues, Pep-1, which was designed on the basis of a protein-interacting domain associated with a nuclear localization sequence and separated by a linker. This peptide carrier constitutes a powerful tool for the(More)
To identify rules for the design of efficient cell-penetrating peptides that deliver therapeutic agents into subcellular compartments, we compared the properties of two closely related primary amphipathic peptides that mainly differ by their conformational state. On the basis of a peptide Pbeta that is nonstructured in water and that promotes efficient(More)
Cell penetrating peptides constitute a potent approach to overcome the limitations of in vivo siRNA delivery. We recently proposed a peptide-based nanoparticle system, CADY, for efficient delivery of siRNA into numerous cell lines. CADY is a secondary amphipathic peptide that forms stable complexes with siRNA thereby improving both their cellular uptake and(More)
Rational design of peptides is a challenge, which would benefit from a better knowledge of the rules of sequence-structure-function relationships. Peptide structures can be approached by spectroscopy and NMR techniques but data from these approaches too frequently diverge. Structures can also be calculated in silico from primary sequence information using(More)
Delivery of siRNA remains a major limitation to their clinical application, and several technologies have been proposed to improve their cellular uptake. We recently described a peptide-based nanoparticle system for efficient delivery of siRNA into primary cell lines: CADY. CADY is a secondary amphipathic peptide that forms stable complexes with siRNA and(More)
One of the major challenges for new therapeutics molecules to enter the clinic remains improving their bioavailability and cellular uptake. Therefore, delivery has become a key stone in therapeutic development and several technologies have been designed to improve cellular uptake of therapeutic molecules, including cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) or(More)
The clinical use of efficient therapeutic agents is often limited by the poor permeability of the biological membranes. In order to enhance their cell delivery, short amphipathic peptides called cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) have been intensively developed for the last two decades. CPPs are based either on protein transduction domains, model peptide or(More)
The development of therapeutic peptides and proteins is limited by the poor permeability and the selectivity of the cell membrane. The discovery of protein transduction domains has given a new hope for administration of large proteins and peptides in vivo. We have developed a non-covalent strategy for protein transduction based on an amphipathic peptide,(More)
