Abstract:

We rationally designed and synthesized a novel cationic polymer with intrinsic endosomolytic properties based on a semi-peptide monomer bridged by disulfide bonds. This polymer was shown to associate with DNA and to form polyplexes with gene transfection activity without addition of chloroquine, a known endosomolytic agent.
