Arginine-rich peptides, including octaarginine (R8), HIV-1 Tat, and branched-chain arginine-rich peptides, belong to one of the major classes of cell-permeable peptides which deliver various proteins and macromolecules to cells. The importance of the endocytic pathways has recently been demonstrated in the cellular uptake of these peptides. We have previously shown that macropinocytosis is one of the major pathways for cellular uptake and that organization of the F-actin accompanies this… CONTINUE READING
