Nutrient transporters have attracted significant attention for their promising application in biomimetic delivery. Due to the active consumption of nutrients, the cancer cells generally overexpress nutrient transporters to meet their increased need for energy and materials. For example, albumin-binding proteins (ABP) are highly overexpressed in the malignant cells, stromal cells, and tumor vessel endothelial cells responsible for albumin uptake. Read More
