Directed arrangement of siRNA via polymerization-induced electrostatic self-assembly

Author affiliations

Abstract

Herein, polymerization-induced electrostatic self-assembly (PIESA) is conducted to mediate the self-assembly behavior of short interfering RNA (siRNA) for the first time. In PIESA, siRNA not only formed a simple electrostatic polyplex with positively charged polycations, but also facilitated directed self-assembly due to the molecular rigidity of siRNA, leading to appealing nanotubes.
