Article
Full-text available
Supramolecular structures, such as micelles, liposomes, polymerosomes or dendrimerosomes, are widely studied and used as drug delivery systems. The behavior of amphiphilic building blocks strongly depends on their spatial distribution and shape of polar and nonpolar component. This report is focused on the development of new versatile synthetic pro...
Article
Glycodendrimers are a novel group of dendrimers (DDMs) characterized by surface modifications with various types of glycosides. It has been shown previously that such modifications significantly decrease the cytotoxicity of DDMs. Here, we present an investigation of glucose-modified carbosilane DDMs (first-third-generation, DDM1-3Glu) interactions...
Article
Non-viral gene delivery vectors studied in the gene therapy applications are often designed with the cationic nitrogen containing groups necessary for binding and cell release of nucleic acids. Disadvantage is a relatively high toxicity which restricts the in vivo use of such nanoparticles. Here we show, that the 3rd generation carbosilane dendrime...
Article
Glycodendrimers (Glyco-DDMs) represent a rapidly growing class of nanoparticles with promising properties for biomedical applications but concerns regarding the impact on human health and environment are still justified. Here we report, for the first time, the comparative study of in vivo developmental toxicity of carbosilane Glyco-DDMs and their c...
Article
The influence of three generations of five different phosphonium carbosilane dendrimers and one ammonium carbosilane dendrimer as a reference (PMe3, PBu3, P(Et2)2(CH2)3OH, PPh3, P(MeOPh)3 and NMe3, peripheral functional groups) on dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) or a lipid mixture dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine/dimyristoylphosphatidylglycerol...
Article
Full-text available
We report the synthesis and cytotoxicity evaluation of a completely new class of cationic carbosilane dendrimers functionalized with several different phosphonium peripheral groups and an ammonium functionalised one as a reference. The carbosilane dendrimers with NMe3, PMe3, P(Et2)2(CH2)3OH, PBu3, P(C6H4-OMe)3 and P(Ph)3 peripheral substituents wer...

Introduction Authors of numerous publications have proved the therapeutic effect of laser irradiation on biological material, but the mechanisms at cellular and subcellular level are not yet well understood. Objective The aim of this study was to assess the effect of laser radiation emitted by the MLS M1 system (Multiwave Locked System) at two wav...
Article
Regardless of the route of administration, some or all of a therapeutic agent will appear in the blood stream, where it can act on blood cells and other components of the plasma. Recently we have shown that poly(ethylene imines) (PEIs) which interact with plasma proteins are taken up into erythrocyte membranes. These observations led us to investig...
Article
For the design of a biohybrid structure as a ligand-tailored drug delivery system (DDS), it is highly sophisticated to fabricate a DDS based on smoothly controllable conjugation steps. This article reports on the synthesis and the characterization of biohybrid conjugates based on noncovalent conjugation between a multivalent biotinylated and PEGyla...
Article
Interactions between maltose functionalized hyperbranched poly(ethylene imine)s (95% maltose decoration denoted as Mal-PEI A; 33% maltose decoration denoted as Mal-PEI B) and red blood cells (RBCs) and between red blood cell membranes were investigated. We monitored the degree of hemolysis, the change in cell shape, the influence of polymers on the...
Article
The influence of maltose-modified poly(propylene imine) (PPI) dendrimers on dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) or dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine/dimyristoylphosphatidylglycerol (DMPC/DMPG) (3%) liposomes was studied. Fourth generation (G4) PPI dendrimers with primary amino surface groups were partially (open shell glycodendrimers - OS) or comple...
Article
Polymers with functionalized surfaces have attracted a lot of attention in the last few years. Due to the progress in the techniques of polymer micro-patterning, miniaturized bioanalytical assays and biocompatible devices can be developed. In the presented work, we performed surface modification of polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) foil by an excimer...
Article
Full-text available
The therapeutic effects of low-power laser radiation of different wavelengths and light doses are well known, but the biochemical mechanism of the interaction of laser light with living cells is not fully understood. We have investigated the effect of MLS (Multiwave Locked System) laser near-infrared irradiation on cell membrane structure, function...
Article
Full-text available
The biostimulating activity of low level laser radiation of various wavelengths and energy doses is widely documented in the literature, but the mechanisms of the intracellular reactions involved are not precisely known. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the influence of low level laser radiation from an multiwave locked system (MLS) of two wave...
Article
We have investigated the interactions between cationic NN16 and BDBR0011 carbosilane dendrimers with red blood cells or their cell membranes. The carbosilane dendrimers used possess 16 cationic functional groups. Both the dendrimers are made of water-stable carbon-silicon bonds, but NN16 possesses some oxygen-silicon bonds that are unstable in wate...
Article
Unlabelled: Modification of the surface groups of dendrimers is one of the methods to improve their biocompatibility. This article presents results of experiments related to the toxicity of a modified polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimer of the fourth generation with 4-carbomethoxypyrrolidone surface groups (PAMAM-pyrrolidone dendrimer). The cytotoxic...
Article
One of the major limitations in gene therapy is an inability of naked siRNA to passively diffuse through negatively charged cell membranes. Therefore, the siRNA transport into a cell requires efficient carriers. In this work we analyzed the charge-dependent interaction of the complexes of cationic carbosilane dendrimers (CBD) and anti-HIV siRNA (de...
Article
The aim of this work was to study interactions between cationic carbosilane dendrimers (CBS) and lipid bilayers or monolayers. Two kinds of second generation carbosilane dendrimers were used: NN16 with Si-O bonds and BDBR0011 with Si-C bonds. The results show that cationic carbosilane dendrimers interact both with liposomes and lipid monolayers. In...
Article
Large unilamellar liposomes and multilamellar vesicles consisting of DMPC interacted with cationic phosphorus-containing dendrimers CPDs G3 and G4. DSC and ζ-potential measurements have shown that liposomal-dendrimeric molecular recognition probably occurs due to the interaction between the complementary surface groups. Calorimetric studies indicat...

RNA interference (RNAi) is a natural de fence path way in a variety of species, which leads to the posttranscriptional gene silencing - degradation of target messenger RNAs in a gene-de pendent manner. This phenomenon has been employed to ma nip u late gene expression by introduction of small interfering RNA (siRNA) into the cell. Re searchers are...
Article
The influence of cationic phosphorus-containing dendrimers generation 3 and 4 on model DMPC or DPPC lipid membranes was studied. Measurements of fluorescence anisotropy and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were applied to assess changes in lipid bilayer parameters, including fluidity, anisotropy, and phase-transition temperature. Interaction...
Article
The interaction of cationic carbosilane dendrimers NN16 and BDBR0011 with large unilamellar vesicles (LUVs) composed of neutral dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC), negatively charged dipalmitoyl phosphatidylglycerol (DPPG), and their mixture DMPC/DPPG in a molar ratio 7:3 was studied. Dendrimers can be used as potential drug carriers and the LUV...
Article
Despite the rapid development of modern pharmaceutics, delivery of drugs to sites of action is not always effective. The research on new targeting delivery systems of pharmacologically active molecules is of great importance. Surface properties such as surface charge of drug delivery particles frequently define their pharmacokinetic profile; hence...
