A novel conjugate of a cell-penetrating peptide and a ferrocenyl amino acid: a potential electrochemical sensor for living cells?

Author affiliations

Abstract

The conjugation of a ferrocenyl amino acid to the cell-penetrating peptide hCT(9–32) does not impair its ability to efficiently translocate into cells. Furthermore, the bioconjugate does not induce any cytotoxicity, thus presenting a potential electrochemical sensor suitable for the detection of living cells.
