To date, the primary approach to improve the transfection properties of cationic lipids has been the synthesis of new kinds of cationic amphipaths or the inclusion of noncationic helper lipids. Here, it is reported that an alternative approach can be...

The non-lamellar phases formed by membrane lipids in diluted aqueous dispersions are mainly represented by the inverted hexagonal phase, HII, and phases of cubic symmetry, among them the bicontinuous cubic phases Pn3m (Q224), Im3m (Q229) and Ia3d (Q230). Here we...

To date, the primary approach to improving the transfection properties of cationic lipids has been the synthesis of new kinds of cationic amphipaths. Recently, however, it was found that combining two cationic lipid derivatives having the same head group but...

Synthetic cationic lipids can be used as DNA carriers and are regarded to be the most promising non-viral gene carriers. For this investigation, six novel phosphatidylcholine (PC) cationic derivatives with various hydrophobic moieties were synthesized and their transfection efficiencies for...
