Front Cover: The cover page presents the integration of an endosome-escaping function into PLys polyplex via electrostatic interaction with a charge-conversion polymer. The charge-conversion polymer converts its charge from negative to positive at acidic endosomal pH to induce endosome disruption, facilitating endosome escape of the PLys polyplex for safe and efficient transfection. Further details can be found in the article by M. Sanjoh, S. Hiki, Y. Lee, M. Oba, K. Miyata, T. Ishii, and K. Kataoka* on page 1181.
