Purpose LyP-1, a nine-amino-acid tumor homing peptide, selectively binds to its cognate receptor, p32. Overexpression of p32 in certain tumors should allow use of LyP-1 as a targeting agent for the delivery of therapeutic or diagnostic agents. Peptide conjugates are developed for enhanced pretargeting of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells with peptideantibody bispecific complexes and targeting with multipledrug/- fluorophore-conjugated nano-polymers.
