I'd like to add a cell penetrating peptide to my custom peptide (30aa). Can I just add it to the end of the peptide sequence or does it have to be positioned on an outward facing external chain?

This papers tables shows that cell penetrating peptides are placed before their cargo peptide and do not need to be on a side chain. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1576229/table/tbl1/
