AbstractTreatment of dendriplexes formed between water-soluble carbosilane dendrimers and phosphorothioate oligodeoxynucleotides (ODN) with the anionic detergent sodium dodecyl sulfate disrupted the complexes indicating that the nature of the union in such dendriplexes is merely electrostatic. However, dendriplexes were not dissociated by serum proteins like bovine or human serum albumins, as assessed by gel electrophoresis and fluorescence experiments. This would imply a dendrimer-mediated protective effect able to prevent ODN interactions with serum proteins and additionally could translate into a reduction of the ODN doses needed to achieve the biological effects. The employment of carbosilane dendrimers as carriers may solve the problem of ODN kidnapping by plasmatic proteins as a key drawback for therapeutics involving ODNs. As examples, transfection processes on normal primary peripheral blood cells and diagnosis of HIV infection in the presence of serum have been assayed.
