Abstract

The incorporation of transgenes into the host cells' nuclei is problematicusing conventional nonviral gene delivery technologies. Here we describe astrategy, called steroid-mediated gene delivery (SMGD), which uses steroidreceptors as shuttles to facilitate the uptake of transfected DNA into thenucleus. We use glucocorticoid receptors (GRs) as a model system with which to test the principle of SMGD. To this end, we synthesized and tested several bifunctional steroid derivatives, finally focusing on a compound namedDR9NP, consisting of a dexamethasone backbone linked to a psoralen moiety using a nine-atom chemical spacer. DR9NP binds to the GR in either its freeor DNA-crosslinked form, inducing the translocation of the GR to the nucleus. The expression of transfected DR9NP-decorated reporter plasmids is enhanced in dividing cells: expression of steroid-decorated reporter plasmids depends on the presence of the GR, is independent of the transactivation potential of the GR, and correlates with enhanced nuclear accumulation of the transgene in GR-positive cells. The SMGD effect is also observed in cells naturally expressing GRs and is significantly increased in nondividing cell cultures. We propose that SMGD could be used as a platform for selective targeting of transgenes in nonviral somatic gene transfer.
