CNTs can carry significant amounts of medicinal materials within their structures and then translocate through plasma membranes in a manner resembling cell-penetrating peptides
. Over the past few years, several research groups have demonstrated the ability of both single-walled CNTs (SWCNTs) and multi-walled CNTs to move inside a variety of cell types and deliver both therapeutic and diagnostic small molecules to the cells.
Wang's team attached cell-penetrating peptides
to molecules from cells of a skin cancer known as melanoma.
