Asymmetrical N4,N9-diacyl spermines: SAR studies of nonviral lipopolyamine vectors for efficient siRNA delivery with silencing of EGFP reporter gene.

Our aim is to study the effects of varying the two acyl moieties in synthesized N(4),N(9)-diacyl spermines on siRNA formulations and their delivery efficiency in cell lines. Six novel asymmetrical lipopolyamines, [N(4)-cholesteryloxy-3-carbonyl-N(9)-oleoyl-, N(4)-decanoyl-N(9)-oleoyl-, N(4)-decanoyl-N(9)-stearoyl-, N(4)-lithocholoyl-N(9)-oleoyl-, N(4… (More)
