Nanotechnology and nucleic acid based therapies are two emerging fields in science whose combination has the potential to improve quality of life for patients suffering from various diseases that can so far only be treated in an unsatisfactory way. Nucleic acids offer the potential for highly selective treatment of such diseases or the highly specific modulation of gene expression with RNA interference. A key issue for successful nucleic acid therapies is the availability of a suitable delivery system. Here, the field of nanotechnology offers a multitude of possibilities to develop nanosized delivery vectors tailor-made for various local and systemic approaches. In Nanotechnology for Nucleic Acid Delivery: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field cover the area of nanoparticulate delivery of nucleic acids in terms of biosafety, particle synthesis as well as its application in cell culture. Written in the successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Nucleic acid (NA) therapeutics has been extensively studied both in the academia and in the pharmaceutical industry and is still considered the promise for new therapeutic modalities, especially in personalized medicine. The only hurdle that limits the translation of NA therapeutics from an academic idea to the new therapeutic modality is the lack of efficient and safe delivery strategies. Nanotechnology for the Delivery of Therapeutic Nucleic Acids, written by world experts in the field of nanotechnology for NA delivery, the contributing authors bring together the state of the art in delivery strategies with strong emphasis on aspects that are of essence to the pharmaceutical industry, such as stability, general toxicity, immune-toxicity, pharmacokinetics, efficacy, and validation of new drug targets using unique approaches based on exquisite nanotechnology strategies.

Gene silencing mediated through short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) is rapidly emerging as a new class of therapeutics for the treatment of inherited and acquired diseases. However, poor cellular uptake and instability in physiological conditions limits its therapeutic potential, hence there arises a need to develop a delivery system which can protect and efficiently transport siRNA to the target cells. Nanotechnology based non-viral vectors have been proposed as a potential alternate. Various polymeric nanoparticles have been shown as suitable delivery candidates with high cellular uptake efficiencies and advantage of reduced cytotoxicity. These delivery vectors form condensed complexes with siRNA which in turn provides protection to siRNA from enzymatic degradation and further leads to enhanced tissue and cellular targeting. Nanoparticles prepared from various polymers like polyethylenimine, chitosan have been largely exploited, as they bear several advantages such as, easy manipulatibility, high stability, low cost and high payload. Though numerous publications have appeared in the literature, there was still need to get more information under one roof, as book compilation which could provide a systematic account of all the aspects of nanotechnology mediated gene silencing right from the preparation of nanoparticles to in vitro and in vivo characterization followed by various applications in vitro and in vivo models. This book focuses on various aspects of nanotechnology based gene silencing. The initial chapters detail the techniques available for in vitro and in vivo characterization of nanoparticles. In the later chapters, exhaustive details about various polymeric systems employed for gene silencing has been accounted. The important topics discussed in the book include: Introduction to Nanotechnology Physicochemical Characterization of Nanoparticles In Vitro and In Vivo Characterization of Nanoparticles Concept and Barriers to Gene Silencing Nanoparticles Mediated Targeted siRNA delivery Polymers for siRNA Delivery Chitosan Polyethylenimine Poly-L-lysine Atelocollagen Protamine Dendrimers Cyclodextrin Poly (D, L-lactide-co-glycolide) Nanomaterials for siRNA delivery

In the past few decades there has been incredible growth in "bionano"-related research, which has been accompanied by numerous publications in this field. Although various compilations address topics related to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and protein, there are few books that focus on determining the structure of ribonucleic acid (RNA) and using RNA as building blocks to construct nanoarchitectures for biomedical and healthcare applications. RNA Nanotechnology is a comprehensive volume that details both the traditional approaches and the latest developments in the field of RNA-related technology. This book targets a wide audience: a broad introduction provides a solid academic background for students, researchers, and scientists who are unfamiliar with the subject, while the in-depth descriptions and discussions are useful for advanced professionals. The book opens with reviews on the basic aspects of RNA biology, computational approaches for predicting RNA structures, and traditional and emerging experimental approaches for probing RNA structures. This section is followed by explorations of the latest research and discoveries in RNA nanotechnology, including the design and construction of RNA-based nanostructures. The final segment of the book includes descriptions and discussions of the potential biological and therapeutic applications of small RNA molecules, such as small/short interfering RNAs (siRNAs), microRNAs (miRNAs), RNA aptamers, and ribozymes.
