Abstract
This study aims to develop bioreducible polyethylenimine (rPEI)/siRNA polyplexes with high stability, high transfection efficiency, and low cytotoxicity for efficient cytoplasmic siRNA delivery. rPEI successfully incorporated siRNA into stable and compact nano-complexes, and the disulfide linkages in rPEI/siRNA were cleaved under reductive environments, resulting in efficient intracellular translocation and siRNA release. In this study, receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE) was selected as a therapeutic target gene because it is associated with inflammatory responses in ischemia/reperfusion injury. rPEI/siRAGE exhibited high target gene silencing and low cytotoxicity in cardiomyocytes, and the treatment of rPEI/siRAGE reduced the myocardial infarction size.
