Description: The tumor-homing peptide Cys-Arg-Glu-Lys-Ala (CREKA) is a short linear pentapeptide that recognizes clotted plasma proteins and selectively homes in on tumors. Interestingly, this tumor-homing peptide has attracted special attention as it homes in on tumors amplifying its own homing activity by stimulating platelet clot formation. The experimental results obtained indicate that CREKA-modified nanoparticles accumulate in tumor vessels, where they induce additional local clotting and thereby produce new binding sites for more nanoparticles in tumor tissues without causing clotting in normal tissues.
