A peptide that can cross the blood-brain barrier

In a paper published in Science China Materials, a research team reports on a novel tetrapeptide, GFFY, which is capable of efficiently crossing the blood-brain barrier (BBB). The tetrapeptide is highly versatile in covalent labeling with Cy5.5 and the resulting Cy5.5-GFFY can self-assemble into nanospheres.
