A self-assembled bifunctional peptide (HRK-19)-based docetaxel loaded nanoparticle is developed. HRK-19 peptide, is conjugated with bifunctional tumor targeting peptide sequences—NGRRGD and histidine-alanine-valine—and apoptosis-inducing peptide sequence—AVPIAQK. These docetaxel/peptide nanoparticles can target to the tumor cells, induce apoptosis of tumor cells by apoptosis-inducing peptide AVPIAQK and docetaxel, and successfully inhibit tumor growth of mice.
