Ultrasonic destruction of albumin microbubbles enhances gene transfection and expression in cardiac myocytes.


BACKGROUND It has been proven that ultrasonic destruction of microbubbles can enhance gene transfection efficiency into the noncardiac cells, but there are few reports about cardiac myocytes. Moreover, the exact mechanisms are not yet clear; whether the characteristic of microbubbles can affect the gene transfection efficiency or not is still controversial… (More)
