Product Name: Cholesterol-Spermine(Carbamate)
IUPAC Name: (3S,8S,9S,10R,13R,14S,17R)-10,13-dimethyl-17-((R)-6-methylheptan-2-yl)-2,3,4,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17-tetradecahydro-1H-cyclopenta[a]phenanthren-3-yl (3-((4-((3-aminopropyl)amino)butyl)amino)propyl)carbamate,
Description: New polycationic lipids corresponding to the two different classes of amphiphiles (“head-tail” and “gemini”) were designed and used as components of non-viral gene delivery systems. The hydrophobic domain of lipids is based on the cholesterol residue and the hydrophilic one–on the naturally occurring polyamine–spermine. Ester and carbamate linker groups as well as oligomethylene spacers of various lengths were used to connect cholesterol and spermine motifs in order to estimate the structure-activity relationships of novel polycationic lipids and to determine an effective and safe transfectant suitable for the delivery of different nucleic acids.
