Project: Cell permeable peptides : physiological significance and biotechnological applications.

project duration
01-NOV-98 – 31-OCT-00
abstract
Starting from two families of peptides that translocate across biological membranes, the main objectives of this project are the understanding of the mechanisms involved and the studying of the physiological relevance of the phenomenon. Hopefully, this will lead to the development of new strategies for the internalization of hydrophilic compounds by lice cells and for their transport across epithelial barriers.
