Resum: Homing peptides are exploited in nanomedicine to functionalize either free drugs or nanostructured materials used as drug carriers. However, the influence of multivalent versus monovalent peptide presentation on the interaction with the receptor and on the consequent intracellular delivery of the associated cargo remains poorly explored. By using a tumor-homing peptide (T22) with regulatable self-assembling properties we have investigated here if its display in a either a monomeric form or as multimeric, self-assembled protein nanoparticles might determine the efficacy of receptor-mediated penetrability into target cells. This has been monitored by using a fluorescent cargo protein (iRFP), which when fused to the homing peptide acts as convenient reporter. The results indicate that the nanoparticulate protein versions are significantly more efficient in mediating receptor-dependent uptake than their unassembled counterparts. These finding stresses an additional benefit of nanostructured materials based on repetitive building blocks, regarding the multivalent presentation of cell ligands that facilitate cell penetration in drug delivery applications.
