Optimal Design of Novel Functionalized Nanoconjugates Based on Polymalic Acid for Efficient Tumor Endocytosis with Enhanced Anticancer Activity.

To overcome the strong negative charge and improve the endocytosis of poly-β-malic acid (PMLA) as a drug carrier, a pH-sensitive nanoconjugate of PMLA/hyd-PEG5000/PEG2000-TAT/DOX (PHPTD) was developed. The trans activator of transcription (TAT) modified with polyethylene glycol2000(PEG2000) was conjugated with the PMLA backbone which improved the… CONTINUE READING
