YTA2 - cell penetrating peptide
YTA2 is a synthetic cell-penetrating peptide (CPPs), which allows mediating the transport of cargo proteins across the cell membrane. Unlike many other YTA2 does not have to be chemically linked with the cargo molecule to mediate its transport. Simple coincubation of YTA2, the cargo molecule, and the cell is sufficient.
