Figure 1. Systemic administration (i.v.) of Lipid-based In Vivo reagent conjugated with siRNA targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA following the recommended protocol. Tissues were collected and RNA isolated 48 hours after first injection. Samples were analyzed by qRT-PCR for Lamin A/C gene expression levels. Ribosomal RNA levels were used to normalize the Lamin A/C data. Data are means ± SD (n=6).
Figure 2. Intratumoral administration (i.t.) of Lipid-based In Vivo reagent conjugated with siRNA targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA following the recommended protocol. Tissues were collected and RNA isolated 48 hours after first injection. Samples were analyzed by qRT-PCR for Lamin A/C gene expression levels. Ribosomal RNA levels were used to normalize the Lamin A/C data. Data are means ± SD (n=6).
Figure 3. Systemic administration (i.v.) of Lipid In Vivo Transfection Reagent conjugated with 80 ug of chemically modified siRNA targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA following the recommended protocol. Tissues (Liver, Brain, Muscle, Kidney, Tumor, Heart, Spleen, Lung) were collected and total protein fraction isolated 72 hours after first injection. Samples were analyzed by Western Blot Analysis for Lamin A/C gene expression levels.

Lipid-based in vivo delivery systems
Lipid reagents suitable for tissue-targeted delivery of biomaterials are designed for effective transfection of nucleic acids, such as DNA or RNA, into cells. Lipid reagents must be biodegradable and non-toxic. In tissue engineering, lipid reagents can be used to deliver genes that promote the growth and differentiation of cells in a specific tissue. Such lipid reagents are designed to release their drug payload in response to specific stimuli, such as enzymes that are abundant in the target tissue. However, lipid reagents must be carefully designed to ensure safety and efficacy. Lipid-based transfection reagents that are commonly used for in vitro applications are not compatible for in vivo use due to an immune response and causing toxicity to tissues.
