Inducing Cancer Cell Death by Inhibition of GPCR Signaling Based on the Tumor Microenvironment
SUMMARY Damien Thevenin, at Lehigh University has developed a compound, pH (low) insertion peptide (pHLIP), which can selectively target tumors based on their low extracellular pH, while sparing healthy tissues and preventing off-target toxicity. This delivery peptide can be conjugated to soluble peptides capable of inhibiting the activity of G-pro...
