Figure 1

Overview of the investigated peptides. (A) Oct4-PTD derives from the third helix of the homeodomain (orange) of the transcription factor Oct4 (POU5F1), which possesses a POU-specific and a homeodomain [42], pdb: 3L1P. (B) The sequence alignment of Oct4-PTD and Penetratin shows great conservation, almost half of the residues are identical (*), more than two thirds of the peptide share at least same charge (* or :) (C, D) Helical wheel projection of Oct4-PTD or penetratin.
