The utility of tumor-specifically internalizing peptides for targeted siRNA delivery into human solid tumors.


BACKGROUND Ribonucleotide reductase composed of the hRRM1 and hRRM2 subunits catalyzes the conversion of ribonucleotides to their corresponding deoxy forms for DNA replication. Anti-hRRM2 siRNA degrades hRRM2's mRNA and suppresses tumorigenesis. A Phase I clinical trial demonstrated its therapy potential. HN-1 represents a tumor-specifically internalizing… (More)
