Activation of cell-penetrating peptides by disulfide bridge formation of truncated precursors

Author affiliations

Abstract

A small library of oligoarginine peptides equipped with terminal cysteines was studied with respect to their cell-penetrating properties. The peptides themselves were inactive but gained the ability to enter cells upon extension of their sequence through disulfide bridge formation.
