Paper Abstract

The delivery of MOF-enzyme nanofactories (50-100 nm in diameter) into the cytosol of cells will be presented. Delivery is achieved by co-incubation with the peptide dfTAT, a dimeric construct of the HIV TAT peptide. Cytosolic targeting is highly efficient and dfTAT circumvents the endosomal entrapment of macromolecular cargos. The delivery protocol does not require interactions between dfTAT and nanoparticles, thereby eliminating complex labeling steps. Cytosolic access is rapid and cells recover from the delivery process in a matter of minutes. Overall, this approach should facilitate the monitoring of intracellular processes by nanoparticle probes.
