Several biological barriers must be overcome to achieve efficient nonviral gene delivery. These barriers include target cell uptake, lysosomal degradation, and dissociation from the carrier. In this study, we compared the differences in the uptake mechanism of cationic, star-shaped polymer/MMP-9siRNA complexes (β-CD-(D3)7/MMP-9siRNA complexes: polyplexes)(More)
Overexpression of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) is critical for diabetic chronic wounds involved in the refractory wound healing process. We aimed to develop a strategy through RNAi to decrease MMP-9 expression and improve diabetic wound healing. We had explored β-CD-(D3)7 as a gene carrier to take siRNA and effectively interfere with MMP-9 expression.(More)
