In this study, we systematically explore the influence of the lipophilic group on the siRNA transfection properties of the polycationic-based delivery vectors. For this, a novel and modular synthetic strategy was developed for the preparation of polymers carrying a cationic site and a lipophilic group at each polymer repeat unit. These bifunctional polymers could form a complex with siRNA and deliver it to human colon carcinoma cells (HT-29-luc). In general, transfection capability increased… Expand
