Abstract

RNA interference (RNAi) mediated by small interfering RNA (SiRNA) has recently emerged as a potent machinery in regulating gene expression at the post-translation step. Despite its efficiency and specificity, the biggest hurdle against its wide application is the safe and effective delivery of the SiRNA cargo into target cells. Here, we describe the highly effective SiRNA delivery mediated by the cationic helical polypeptides and polypeptide-based nanosystems both in vitro and in vivo via oral administration.
