The engineering of membrane-permeable peptides.


Reversible lipid attachment was investigated as a means to deliver small peptides into cells. Two labile straight chain alkyl motifs were developed: a cysteine dodecane disulfide (Cdd) building block and a tyrosine- or serine-myristate ester. Both moieties are cleaved on cell internalization and are compatible with Fmoc solid phase peptide synthesis. A… (More)
