Understanding the cellular uptake and intracellular trafficking of dendrimer-DNA complexes is an important prerequisite for improving the transfection efficiency of non-viral vector-mediated gene delivery. Dendrimers are synthetic polymers used for gene transfer. Although these cationic molecules show promise as versatile DNA carriers, very little is known(More)
OBJECTIVE Endothelium is an important target for gene therapy. We have investigated the effect of viral and nonviral vectors on the phenotype and function of endothelial cells (ECs) and developed methods to block any activation caused by these vectors. METHODS AND RESULTS Transduction of ECs with viral vectors, including adenovirus, lentiviruses, and(More)
