DNA Nanoparticles Deliver Genes Intravenously

Abstract:
A research team headed by Jean-Paul Behr, Ph.D., at the Louis Pasteur University of Strasbourg, France, has created a novel detergent molecule that interacts with individual DNA molecules to form a nanoparticle 32 nanometers in diameter. These nanoparticles, which are unusual in that they have no charge on their surface, are stable in blood, yet fall apart when exposed to a negatively-charged molecule found only inside cells.
