Abstract/OtherAbstract:
RGD peptides are popular drug delivery tools in treating integrin αVβ3-expressing malignant tumors and tumor vasculature cells. We investigated the specific delivery and pharmacological potential of enantiomeric mitochondria-disruptive peptides (RLYLRIGRR-NH(2), RLRLRIGRR-NH(2), ALYLAIRRR-NH(2), and RLLLRIGRR-NH(2)) after conjugation with an integrin αVβ3-homing peptide, cyclic pentameric RGD peptide. The cyclic RGD-conjugated mitochondria-disruptive peptides exhibited specific internalization, apoptosis induction, and cytotoxicity against integrin αVβ3-high-expressing human umbilical vein endothelial cells. Our findings indicate that these novel peptide complexes might prove good anti-angiogenesis reagents.
