AnaSpec this week introduced new cell-penetrating peptides.

Also called protein transduction domains, the peptides are carriers with small peptide domains that can "freely cross cell membranes," the company said in a statement. Such functionality is needed to deliver the functional domain of a selected protein from the outside to the inside of intact cells.

The new CCPs launched by AnaSpec include antennapedia and TAT.
