Here we show hierarchial forms of a brain-specific phage-derived peptide (herein as NanoLigand Carriers, NLCs) target cerebral endothelial cells through transferrin receptor and the receptor for advanced glycation-end products, cross the blood-brain-barrier and reach neurons and microglial cells.

Crossing the blood-brain-barrier with nanoligand drug carriers self-assembled from a phage display peptide

We show that hierarchical forms of a phage display peptide efficiently target the brain and ferry nucleic acid medicines to neurons and microglia.
