Multifunctional DNAsomes: DNA–lipid amphiphiles self-assemble into novel “DNAsomes”—liposome-like core–shell structures with subunits composed of branched DNA–lipid hybrid molecules. These DNAsomes can be precisely tuned over a wide range in terms of both size and surface charge. More importantly, DNAsome is a natural carrier of small interfering RNA (siRNA) due to DNA–RNA base-pairing, enabling efficient co-delivery of drugs and siRNA. The DNAsome represents a universal multifunctional drug vector for simultaneous delivery of drugs, tracer dyes, or antibodies, along with genes, siRNA, or antisense nucleic acids.
