Abstract Efficient delivery of therapeutic and diagnostic agents across the plasma membrane is crucial in developing novel therapies. Membrane permeating peptides, in particular HIV-1 tat peptide and its derivatives, have enabled the intracellular delivery of cargos of various sizes and physicochemical properties. This review summarizes the current knowledge of tat-derived cell permeating peptides in the transduction of exogenous molecules/complexes. Copyright 2003 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
