BACKGROUND Assistance with exit from endocytic vesicles is a key factor for non-viral gene delivery, and is a particular challenge in vivo. We have evaluated the in vivo use of chloroquine administered systemically, orally and/or locally for gene delivery to the liver. METHODS The DNA vector (polylysine-molossin) is a 31 amino acid bifunctional synthetic peptide, incorporating an amino terminal chain of 16 lysines for electrostatic binding of DNA. Gene delivery was to the right lateral lobes… CONTINUE READING
