Multiple and time-scheduled in situ DNA delivery mediated by beta-cyclodextrin embedded in a polyelectrolyte multilayer.

Abstract : The basic premise of gene therapy is that genes can be used to produce in situ therapeutic proteins. The controlled delivery of DNA complexes from biomaterials offers the potential to enhance gene transfer by maintaining an elevated concentration of DNA within the cellular microenvironment. Immobilization of the DNA to the substrate to which cells adhere maintains the DNA in the cell microenvironment for subsequent cellular internalization. Here, layer-by-layer (LBL) films made from poly(L-glutamic acid) (PLGA) and poly(L-lysine) (PLL) containing DNA were built in the presence of charged cyclodextrins. The biological activities of these polyelectrolyte films were tested by means of induced production of a specific protein in the nucleus or in the cytoplasm by cells in contact with the films. This type of coating offers the possibility for either simultaneous or sequential interfacial delivery of different DNA molecules aimed at cell transfection. These results open the route to numerous potential applications in patch vaccination, for example.
