Although there is great potential for the use of CAP in the development of gene delivery systems, the uncontrollable growth of CAP crystal and low protection of pDNA ability make it difficult to deliver genetic materials into cells.
In this study, the transfection efficiency is optimized by varying the stoichiometry (Ca/P molar ratio) of the double concentric layers of calcium phosphate (DCP) and catechol-conjugated DCP with surface modification by chitosan (Chi). Our results indicate that the increase of DCP (Core Ca/P ratio was 700, shell Ca/P ratio was 130) will restrict the size (108 nm) of CAP crystal growth.
Moreover, A bioadhesive molecule from marine mussels, 3,4-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine (Dopa), is successfully used to bridge inorganic Ca2+ of DCP and organic Chi-functionalized DCP (Chi-D-DCP). The positive surface charge(+36.2mV) of Chi-D-DCP not only improves the binding affinity with plasmid DNA (pDNA) but also obtains better condensation efficacy when compared to Chi-DCP. The efficiency of pDNA protection could be considerably increased by adding another layer of Chi-D on the DCP surface, resulting in successfully incorporating pDNA into the nanocarrier and preventing its degradation within the cell by lysosomes. It is suggested that Chi-D-DCP nanocarrier has good DNase resistant 95% effect, better biocompatibility, and in the Hela cell 32.4% transfection efficary for In vitro. This stabilized CAP-based gene delivery platform could be considered a promising candidate as gene delivery carrier.
