Proteins have a primordial role in mammalian cell functions and are the most abundant cellular macromolecules. They have a key role in cellular structure, regulation of signal transduction, discharge of genetic information and cellular metabolism. Therefore, delivery of proteins and peptides into cells would be an extremely valuable approach for therapeutic purposes as well as for cell biology studies.
