Biodegradable Nano-Polymeric System for Efficient Akt1 siRNA Delivery
Abstract:Biodegradable nano-polymeric carrier composed of polycaprolactone (PCL) and polyethylenimine (PEI) (BNPP) was successfully synthesized for the delivery of sh/siRNA in lung cancer cells. BNPP efficiently and safely delivered siRNA in lung cancer cells. BNPP-delivered Akt1 siRNA silenced Akt1 protein, and reduced the cancer cell survival, proliferation, malignancy and metastasis.
