Helical collagen Peptides as Novel Cancer Drug Carriers

Here, we present peptides that efficiently penetrate cellular membranes by combining very short CPP sequences and collagen-like folding domains that allows triple helical conformation. This conformation allows efficient internalization, increased stability against enzymatic degradation in human serum and minimal toxicity.

Role of Autophagy in Breast Cancer Metastasis

This study shows critical roles for P-body formation and autophagy in transitions of cancer cells between epithelial and mesenchymal phenotypes and help explain how autophagy functions to promote or suppress tumor cell growth during different stages of tumorigenesis.
