HIV-1 Tat protein transduction domain peptide facilitates gene transfer in combination with cationic liposomes.


The protein transduction domain (PTD) of the HIV-1 Tat protein can facilitate the cellular and nuclear uptake of macromolecular particles. Here, we demonstrate that incorporation without covalent linkage of a 17-amino acid PTD peptide into gene delivery lipoplexes improves gene transfer. Tat/Liposome/DNA (TLD) transfection, as evaluated by Fluorescence… (More)
