Abstract

We are designing and developing lipid-polyamines based upon changes in a series of four N-4, N-9-diacyl spermines (myristoyl, palmitoyl, stearoyl, and oleoyl) each end-capped with the weakly basic nitrogen-containing heterocycles imidazole, pyridine, and quinoline for the efficient delivery of genes for gene therapy, and also for the delivery of siRNA to knock-down gene expression.
