Objective: To modify EVs with peptides which confer specific advantageous properties, thus enhancing their therapeutic potential.
Summary: The authors provide an overview of the applications of peptide technology with respect to EV therapeutics. We focus on the utility of EV-modifying peptides for the purposes of promoting cargo loading, tissue-targeting and endosomal escape, leading to enhanced delivery of the EV cargo to desired cells/tissues and subcellular target locations. Both endogenous and exogenous methods for modifying EVs with peptides are considered.
Usage: Streptavidin-ZAP is combined with biotinylated peptides to make a targeted saporin conjugate.
