Cell penetrating peptide (CPP) is one of the effective ways to deliver difficultly penetrable molecules into cells. However, most CPPs show the penetrating activity at high micromolar concentrations, limiting their practical applications. We discovered that CPPs based on multimeric alpha-helical leucine (L) and lysine (K)-rich amphipathic peptides can effectively penetrate cells at 10 nM, a 1,000-fold lower concentration than the penetrable concentrations of previous reported cell penetrating peptides (CPPs), Tat or oligo arginine. The antiparallel conformation of the LK multimer was critical for the effective penetration of the CPPs at low nanomolar concentrations. The multimeric LK-CPPs show rapid cell penetration through macropinocytosis at low nanomolar concentrations, unlike the monomeric LK, which have slower penetrating kinetics at much higher concentrations. The heparan sulfate proteoglycan (HSPG) receptors are highly involved in the rapid internalization of multimeric LK-CPPs. As proof of concepts in biomedical applications, various biomolecules were delivered into cells with bioactivities at nanomolar concentrations. The multimeric CPP can be a useful platform for the intracellular delivery of biomacromolecular reagents that have difficulty with penetration in order to control biological reactions in cells at feasible concentrations for biomedical purposes.
