New Multivalent Cationic Lipid for siRNA Delivery
• Improved total gene silencing
• Lower non-specific gene silencing
• Lower toxicity
These attributes establish the multivalent MVL5 as a superior transfection vector for siRNAs, and have implications for the optimal use of cationic lipids in therapeutic applications.
Now available as a pre-mixed kit, MVL5 and GMO ready to use.
