The authors report their preliminary experience on the production of cystine knot peptides (knottins) 2.5D and 2.5F, engineered to bind with high affinity and specificity to integrin receptors, overexpressed on the surface of a variety of malignant human tumour cells and tumour neovasculature. In this study, 2.5D and 2.5F were… CONTINUE READING
