A triple chain polycationic peptide-mimicking amphiphile - efficient DNA-transfer without co-lipids.
This work has developed a synthetic polycationic peptide-mimicking amphiphile, namely DiTT4, which shows efficient transfection rates and good biocompatibility without the use of a co-lipid in the formulation.
Investigating 3R In Vivo Approaches for Bio-Distribution and Efficacy Evaluation of Nucleic Acid Nanocarriers: Studies on Peptide-Mimicking Ionizable Lipid.
The efficacy of OH4:DOPE as a delivery system for nucleic acids is demonstrated using in vivo approaches and it is shown that the formulation is able to transfect complex tissues using the chicken chorioallantoic membrane model.

Investigation of Binary Lipid Mixtures of a Three-Chain Cationic Lipid with Phospholipids Suitable for Gene Delivery.
Binary lipid mixtures consisting of a three-chain amino-functionalized cationic lipid (DiTT4) with different phospholipids are characterized and efficient lipid compositions were investigated with respect to serum stability.
Cellular and Molecular Barriers to Gene Transfer by a Cationic Lipid (*)
The results indicate that endocytosis was the major mechanism of entry in cationic lipid-mediated gene transfer and suggest that attention to specific steps in the cellular process may further improve the efficiency of transfection and increase its use in a number of applications.
Comparison of the endocytic properties of linear and branched PEIs, and cationic PAMAM dendrimers in B16f10 melanoma cells.
How cationic lipids transfer nucleic acids into cells and across cellular membranes: recent advances.
Mechanism of DNA release from cationic liposome/DNA complexes used in cell transfection.
It is proposed that after the cationic lipid/DNA complex is internalized into cells by endocytosis it destabilization induces flip-flop of anionic lipids from the cytoplasmic-facing monolayer, which laterally diffuse into the complex and form a charge neutral ion pair with the cationsic lipids.
Nonbilayer phase of lipoplex-membrane mixture determines endosomal escape of genetic cargo and transfection efficiency.
