Biodegradable cationic micelles were prepared from PDMAEMA-PCL-PDMAEMA triblock copolymers and applied for the delivery of siRNA and paclitaxel into cancer cells. PDMAEMA-PCL-PDMAEMA copolymers were readily obtained by reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization of dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate (DMAEMA) using CPADN-PCL-CPADN (CPADN: 4-cyanopentanoic acid dithionaphthalenoate; PCL: 3600 Da) as a macro-RAFT agent. The molecular weights of PDMAEMA blocks, controlled by monomer/CPADN-PCL-CPADN mole ratios, varied from 2700, 4800 to 9100 (denoted as polymer 1, 2 and 3, respectively). These triblock copolymers formed nano-sized micelles in water with positive surface charges ranging from +29.3 to +35.5 mV. Both micelles 1 and 2 revealed a low cytotoxicity. Gel retardation assay showed that micelles 1 and 2 could effectively complex with siRNA at and above N/P ratios of 4/1 and 2/1, respectively. Notably, GFP siRNA complexed with micelle 1 exhibited significantly enhanced gene silencing efficiency as compared to that formulated with 20 kDa PDMAEMA or 25kDa branched PEI in GFP-expressed MDA-MB-435-GFP cells. Moreover, micelle 1 loaded with paclitaxel displayed higher drug efficacy than free paclitaxel in PC3 cells, due to most likely improved cellular uptake. The combinatorial delivery of VEGF siRNA and paclitaxel showed an efficient knockdown of VEGF expression. Confocal laser scanning microscope studies on GFP siRNA complexed with nile red-loaded micelle revealed that nile red was delivered into GFP-expressed MDA-MB-435-GFP cells and that GFP expression was significantly inhibited. These results demonstrated that cationic biodegradable micelles are highly promising for the combinatorial delivery of siRNA and lipophilic anti-cancer drugs.
