Graphical Abstract. With this work we highlight the need for a careful experimental design when using fluorescently labeled molecules, since we show that some fluorophores significantly modulate peptide activity, which may contribute to biased results.

The publisher apologizes for this mistake. The original article has been updated.

Keywords: anticancer peptides, BBB peptide shuttles, fluorescence, fluorophore, labeling
