Self-assembling protein nanocarrier for selective delivery of cytotoxic polypeptides to CXCR4
Acta Pharm Sin BMay 2022, 12(5)2578-2591. Epub 14 Oct 2021
Loco-regional recurrences and distant metastases represent the main cause of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) mortality. The overexpression of chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) in HNSCC primary tumors associates with higher risk of developing loco-regional recurrences and distant metastases, thus making CXCR4 an ideal entry pathway for targeted drug delivery. In this context, our group has generated the self-assembling protein nanocarrier T22-GFP-H6, displaying multiple T22 peptidic ligands that specifically target CXCR4. This study aimed to validate T22-GFP-H6 as a suitable nanocarrier to selectively deliver cytotoxic agents to CXCR4
