Cell membranes represent a serious protective barrier for external molecules, proteins, nanoparticles and drugs. This barrier is quite efficient in protecting the interior of the cells. Cell penetrating peptides, certain proteins, pore forming peptides can preferentially interact with lipid membranes and form different structures. Very little can be said about the pathway and the entry mechanism regulating their internalization.
