One of the major limitations in gene therapy is an inability of naked siRNA to passively diffuse through negatively charged cell membranes. Therefore, the siRNA transport into a cell requires efficient carriers. In this work we analyzed the charge-dependent interaction of the complexes of cationic carbosilane dendrimers (CBD) and anti-HIV siRNA(More)
AIMS We have investigated the effect of surface charge of model lipid membranes on their interactions with dendriplexes formed by HIV-derived peptides and 2 types of positively charged carbosilane dendrimers (CBD). METHODS Interaction of dendriplexes with lipid membranes was measured by fluorescence anisotropy, dynamic light scattering and(More)
We studied the surface properties of monolayers composed of polyunsaturated conjugated ethylene glycol phospholipids (carotenoid lipids), compared the data with monolayers of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) to which carotenoids were added and evaluated the impact of the unsaturated glycol lipids on monolayers with the glycerolipid DPPC. The carotenoid(More)
We studied the interaction of cytochrome c (cyt c) with specific calixarenes (CX) incorporated into the large unilamellar vesicles (LUV) composed of dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) or supported lipid membranes (sBLM) and compared this with not specific adsorption of cyt c to the LUV containing DMPC and anionic phosphatidic acid (PA) or sBLM composed(More)
