Herein, we report the preparation of genetically engineered protein cages (HspG41C-SP94), taken up selectively by human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells. An engineered protein cage–doxorubicin (DOX) conjugate was as cytotoxic as free DOX against HCC cells but much less cytotoxic against normal hepatocytes.
