DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF N-ALKYL-POLYETHYLENIMINE-STABILIZED IRON OXIDE NANOCLUSTERS FOR GENE DELIVERY
- 公共卫生－已发表论文 
With the rapid development of nanotechnology, inorganic magnetic nanoparticles, especially iron oxide nanoparticles (IOs), have emerged as great vehicles for biomedical diagnostic and therapeutic applications. In order to rationally design IO-based gene delivery nanovectors, surface modification is essential and determines the loading and release of the gene of interest. Here we highlight the basic concepts and applications of nonviral gene delivery vehicles based on low molecular weight N-alkyl polyethylenimine-stabilized IOs. The experimental protocols related to these topics are described in this chapter.
