Delivery of SiC-based nanoparticles into live cells driven by cell-penetrating peptides SAP and SAP-E
RSC Adv. 2015, 5 (26), 20498-20502
The delivery of SiC-based nanoparticles (SiC-NPs) into living eukaryotic cells is facilitated in the presence of cell-penetrating peptides, both cationic (SAP) and anionic (SAP-E). The SiC-NP surface functional group modification combined with rational CPP selection introduces an additional mode of delivery control.
