Magnetic pH-responsive nanogels as multifunctional delivery tools for small interfering RNA (siRNA) molecules and iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs)

Abstract

We here exploit pH-responsive nanogels as carriers to deliver functional anti-GFP siRNA and superparamagnetic IONPs to HeLa–GFP cells. The siRNA release via pH-mediated endosomal escape is shown. The IONPs act first as magnetofection agents to boost cellular uptake and then as probes to track the release mechanism by electron microscopy.
