Product name: Poly-L-arginine
Format: Hygroscopic, yellow to brown solid
Description: Cationic polypeptides have been extensively used as tools for gene carriers. The main reason for using cationic polypeptides is that cationic polymer vectors provide flexible DNA-carrying capacity and are simple to use. The nature of the basic peptide in efficient protein transduction and in nucleic acid binding prompted us to explore the possibility of DNA transfection by these peptides. Polyarginine peptides delivered genetic material into cells more efficiently than other homopolymer peptides (e.g. polylysine and polyhistidine) of equal length.
