New Drug Delivery System Targets Diseases at a Genetic Level

Enzyme-triggered degradation of a drug loaded peptide-crosslinked nucleic acid nanocapsule. First a peptide is crosslinked at the nanoparticle surface (1), then an enzyme recognizes the peptide crosslinker (2), and finally the enzyme cleavage leads to the release of the drug and any intact DNA (3).
