A series of reducible polycations (RPCs) based on PEGylated peptides, i.e., PolyHK6H, PolyHK6H-mPEG1, PolyHK6H-mPEG2, and PolyHK6H-mPEG3, with different poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) contents, are synthesized. It is found that RPCs with an appropriate PEG amount have high capacity to bind and condense plasmid DNA (pDNA). PolyHK6H-mPEG1 exhibits comparable transfection efficiency in serum-free medium and higher transfection efficiency in serum-supplemented medium compared with 25 kDa polyethyleneimine (PEI).
