Polyethyleneimine as a transmembrane carrier of fluorescently labeled proteins and antibodies.

Abstract

Polyethyleneimine (PEI) has been used previously as a nonviral DNA transfer vector. In this article, we demonstrate its use as a vehicle for transmembrane delivery of proteins in cell culture conditions. Linking proteins to PEI required no other treatment beyond mixing them with PEI. The bond between PEI and protein combined at optimal ratios was maintained… (More)
