Liposome surface modifications serve great potential applications of liposomes, for instance, increasing stability, bioactive liposome conjugates, and targeted drug, gene, and image agent delivery. In this study, novel targeted lipopolymers, peptide 18/peptide 563-poly(2-ethyl-2-oxazoline)-dioleoylphosphatidyl-ethanolamine (P18/P563-PEtOx-DOPE), have been demonstrated to be successfully synthesized. The structures of P18/P563-PEtOx-DOPE were confirmed by FT-IR spectroscopy, GPC, and(1)H-NMR. In this strategy, poly(2-ethyl 2-oxazoline)-modified liposomes were firstly constructed with molecular weights of 3,500 and 5,800 Da. Then, we chose PEtOx(5800)-DOPE because it has been obtained better particle size (88.74 +/- 0.6816) according to the DLS results. Then, peptides- and dye-PEtOx lipid-based nanovesicle (LN) were prepared by peptide-18, peptide-563, and 7-mercapto-4-methyl coumarin. Genetic material (pDNA) was encapsulated into the liposomes and evaluated the encapsulation of plasmid DNA with migration by using agarose gel electrophoresis.In vitrocytotoxicity experiment results on prostate cancer and breast cancer cell lines, parallelly with the healthy prostate (PNT1A) and breast (MCF10A) epithelial cell lines, cells showed insignificant toxic effects. Thus, we can suggest a novel PEtOx phospholipid thanks to this article and its integration with ligands, which great potential for gene transfer system.


Preparation and labeling of surface-modified magnetoferritin protein cages with a rhenium(I) carbonyl complex for magnetically targeted radiotherapy
Aslan, Tugba Nur; Asik, Elif; Volkan, Mürvet (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2016-01-01)
New rhenium radiolabeled compounds are of general interest due to their nuclear characteristics which allow radiotherapy and in situ monitoring of tumor uptake. Biocompatible magnetic nanoparticles capable of transporting radionuclides, providing MRI contrast agent properties for imaging and a therapeutic effect in the target tissue simultaneously, are highly desirable. Herein we describe the preparation of magnetoferritin samples, and their labeling with rhenium in the form of the low oxidation state rheni...
Preparation and application of an s-triazine-based novel N-halamine biocide for antimicrobial fibers
Lee, Jaewoong; Broughton, Royall M.; Akdağ, Akın; Worley, S. D.; Huang, Tung S. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-04-01)
N-halamines serve as important antimicrobial agents. Development of this class of compounds has been shown to provide benefits especially from a biocidal point of, vie w. A novel s-triazine-based N-heterocycle, dichloro-m-aminophenyl-hydantoinyl-s-triazine (DAPHT), which could be rendered antimicrobial through exposure to diluted chlorine bleach, was synthesized and characterized by H-1 NMR, C-13 NMR, and FT-IR. A finishing method was used to apply the N-halamine precursor onto cotton fabric, and the optimu...

New pi-conjugated polymers containing dithieno(3,2-b: 2',3'-d) pyrrole (DTP) were successfully synthesized via electropolymerization. The effect of structural differences on the electrochemical and optoelectronic properties of the 4-[4H-dithieno(3,2-b: 2',3'-d) pyrrol-4-yl] aniline (DTP-aryl-NH2), 10-[4H-dithiyeno(3,2-b: 2',3'-d) pirol-4-il] dekan-1-amine (DTP-alkyl-NH2), and 1,10-bis[4H-dithieno(3,2-b:2',3'-d) pyrrol-4-yl] decane (DTP-alkyl-DTP) were investigated. The corresponding polymers were characteri...

Turac, Ersen; Sahmetlioglu, Ertugrul; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yuruk, Huseyin (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
A new polythiophene derivative was synthesized by electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 2,5-di( thiophen-2-yl)-1-(4-(thiophen-3-yl) phenyl)-1H-pyrrole (TTPP). The structure of the monomer was evaluated by H-1-NMR and FT-IR. The polymer (P(TTPP)) and its co-polymer with 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (P(TTPP-co-EDOT)) were synthesized via potentiostatic electrochemical polymerization. The resulting polymers were characterized by cyclic voltammetry (CV), FT-IR, SEM and UV-Vis spectroscopy, and conductivity ...
Assembly of an antiparallel homo-adenine DNA duplex by small-molecule binding
Persil Çetinkol, Özgül; JAIN, SS; HUD, NV (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2004-07-21)
Molecules that reversibly bind DNA and trigger the formation of non-Watson−Crick secondary structures would be useful in the design of dynamic DNA nanostructures and as potential leads for new therapeutic agents. We demonstrate that coralyne, a small crescent-shaped molecule, promotes the formation of a duplex secondary structure from homo-adenine oligonucleotides. AFM studies reveal that the staggered alignment of homo-adenine oligonucleotides upon coralyne binding produces polymers of micrometers in lengt...
