Description

Packaging

1 mL in glass bottle

Application

Functionalized particles have been extensively used to study cellular uptake of nanoparticles and targeted drug delivery.

Features and Benefits

• Negatively charged siRNA-PEG complex which is attached to positively charged GNPs is easily cleavable in reductive cytosolic environment thus enabling the release of siRNA into cytosol.
• Decreases the cytotoxicity and increases efficiency of GNPs. PEG increases the stability of the nanoparticles and prevents agglomeration.
