Polyplex particles formed with plasmid DNA (pDNA) and Pluronic P85-block-poly{N-[N-(2-aminoethyl)-2-aminoethyl]aspartamide} (P85-b-P[Asp(DET)]) demonstrated highly effective transfection ability compared to PEG-based block cationomer, PEG-b-P[Asp(DET)]. Ternary polyplexes comprising PEG-b-P[Asp(DET)], poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(propylene oxide)-b-poly(ethylene oxide)-b-P[Asp(DET)] (P(EPE)-b-P[Asp(DET)]) used as an analog of P85-b-P[Asp(DET)], and pDNA were...
