Magnetic synthetic hydroxyapatite and natural bone mineral nanoparticles are synthesized as non-viral vectors for gene delivery. The magnetic calcium phosphate nanoparticles display a high binding affinity for plasmid DNA in contrast to magnetite nanoparticles and enable substantial increases in the transfection of mesenchymal stem cells in vitro with the gene for a neurotrophic factor, under the action of an external magnet.
