We previously reported on a polyhistidine peptide, His16 peptide, as a new cell-penetrating peptide. This peptide is anticipated to be a new carrier for drug delivery systems (DDSs) for targeting intracellular lysosomes because it can transport macromolecules (e.g., liposomes) into these organelles. In the present study, we examined the application of His16 peptide as a DDS carrier against lysosomal storage disease (LSD) cells. LSDs are metabolic disorders caused by loss of specific lysosomal enzymes. For the treatment of LSD cells, we devised a system designated organelle replacement therapy (ORT). ORT is a strategy for transporting exogenous lysosomes containing all kinds of lysosomal enzymes from normal cells into endogenous lysosomes in LSD cells using His16 peptide. To develop the ORT system, we prepared His16 peptide-modified healthy lysosomes (His16-Lyso) by insertion of a stearyl-His16 peptide into a hydrophobic region in the lysosomal membrane. His16-Lyso showed cellular uptake and localization to endogenous lysosomes in LSD cells. His16-Lyso also restored the proliferation of LSD cells, which otherwise showed slower proliferation than normal cells. These results suggested that His16-Lyso replenished deficient lysosomal enzymes in LSD cells. The results further suggest that His16-Lyso are promising candidates as a treatment tool for LSD cells and to establish a foundation for ORT.
