Many synthetic polycationic vectors for non-viral gene delivery show high efficiency in vitro, but their usually excessive charge density makes them toxic for in vivo applications. Here we describe the synthesis of a series of high molecular weight terpolymers with low charge density, and show that they exhibit efficient gene delivery, some surpassing the efficiency of the commercial transfection reagents Polyethylenimine and Lipofectamine 2000. The terpolymers were synthesized via enzyme… Expand
Tunability of Biodegradable Poly(amine- co-ester) Polymers for Customized Nucleic Acid Delivery and Other Biomedical Applications.
TLDR
This work synthesized and characterized a library of biocompatible low charge density polymers from a family of poly(amine- co-ester) (PACE) terpolymers produced via enzyme catalyzed polymerization and found that the terpolymer composition can be optimized to produce efficient transfection of various nucleic acids in specific cell types with low toxicity.

Synthesis and evaluation of degradable polyurea block copolymers as siRNA delivery agents.
TLDR
The polymer, PEG-b-multi-(polyhexylurea-co-oligo-L-lysine)-b-PEG, was capable of electrostatically condensing siRNA to form nano-sized polyplexes across a broad compositional range and were capable of delivering siRNA in vitro to silence greater than 50% green fluorescent protein expression with negligible toxicity.

Differentially Branched Ester Amine Quadpolymers with Amphiphilic and pH-Sensitive Properties for Efficient Plasmid DNA Delivery.
TLDR
Branched poly(Ester Amine) Quadpolymers (BEAQs) are highly effective for delivery of plasmid DNA to retinal pigment epithelial cells and demonstrate multiple improvements over previously reported leading linear poly(beta-amino ester)s, particularly for volume-limited applications where improved efficiency is required.

2-Aminoimidazole facilitates efficient gene delivery in a low molecular weight poly(amidoamine) dendrimer.
TLDR
Assays revealed that the AM group played multiple roles in gene delivery, including condensing DNA into monodisperse nanoparticles of 80-90 nm in diameter, achieving nearly ten times higher cellular-uptake efficacy, and enhancing the abilities of endosome/lysosome escape and nuclear localization. Expand
PEGylation of poly(amine-co-ester) polyplexes for tunable gene delivery.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that excess PEGylation can be detrimental to vehicle function, and suggested that P EGylation of cationic vehicles must be optimized by PEG content, cargo type, and delivery route. Expand

TLDR
Decationized polyplexes are a platform for safer polymeric vectors with improved biodistribution properties when systemically administered and exhibited an increased circulation time and higher tumor accumulation when compared to their cationic precursors. Expand
A core-shell structured polyplex for efficient and non-toxic gene delivery.
TLDR
A core-shell polyplex using a high generation dendrimer to condense plasmid DNA at a very low nitrogen/phosphorus (N/P) ratio, followed by coating with a low-molecular-weight cationic polymer to offset the positive charge exhibited the highest transfection efficacy and minimal toxicity. Expand
One-pot Synthesis of Functional Poly(amino ester sulfide)s and Utility in Delivering pDNA and siRNA.
TLDR
This work developed a library of 144 degradable polymers with varying amine and hydrophobic content via a facile method that involves thiobutyrolactone aminolysis and consequent thiol-(meth)acrylate or acrylamide addition in one-pot and may have broad applicability in the design of delivery materials for gene therapy.
