Grafting From siRNA as an Alternative Synthesis Route to siRNA-Polymer Conjugates

Lin, E. W.; Maynard, H. D., "Grafting From siRNA as an Alternative Synthesis Route to siRNA-Polymer Conjugates," Macromolecules, 2015, DOI: 10.1021/acs.macromol.5b00846 [LINK]

Small interfering ribonucleic acids (siRNAs) are important therapeutic agents and are challenging to deliver efficiently. To address this, covalent attachment of synthetic polymers to siRNA has become of great interest. In this paper, we present a synthetic route to siRNA-polymer conjugates by the grafting from method, meaning that the polymerization of monomers occurs from an initiating site that is attached to siRNA.
