Handbook of Cell-Penetrating Peptides
Second Edition
by Ulo Langel

Handbook of Cell-Penetrating Peptides summarizes the current state of the field including recent reevaluations of earlier studies of CPP mechanisms.


  • Provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive overview of cell penetrating peptides
  • Offers the most recent research in uptake mechanisms and their application to future drug delivery systems
  • Demonstrates how various cargo types can be efficiently transported intracellularly by their attachment to CPPs
  • Includes novel technology for the prediction of CPPs by the application of descriptors of individual amino acids
  • Emphasizes uniformity of method, standards, and practice in the research laboratory
