Combination of chemotherapy and gene therapy of cancer has synergistic effects on overcoming drug resistance. Macromolecular materials such as dextran and PEI have been a potential module for chemotherapeutics and gene delivery. Herein, we hypothesize the combinational strategy of chemotherapy and gene therapy in a single dextran-PEI nanoplatform. The physicochemical properties, cytotoxicity, transfection efficiency were investigated in vitro. Ultra-violet spectrum and (1)H NMR revealed adriamycin and PEI were grafted to dextran chain. Agarose gel electrophoresis demonstrated that the migration of plasmid was completely retarded when the N/P ratio of complex was 4. The sizes of DEX-ADM-PEI/DNA nanoparticles decreased and the zeta potentials enhanced with the increasing N/P ratio. Transmission electron microscope indicated a round morphology of the nanoparticles. DEX-ADM-PEI conjugation has higher cytotoxicity, compared to free adriamycin, in MG-63 and Saos-2 osteosarcoma cells but DEX-PEI maintained over 65% cell viability at the concentration of 8mg/mL. The transfection efficiency of DEX-ADM-PEI/pEGFP-N1 at N/P ratio of 4:1 both in MG-63 and Saos-2 cell were slightly low than that of PEI 25k. But our nanoplatform efficiently delivered both plasmid pEGFP-N1 and adriamycin into osteosarcoma cells. This study demonstrated that DEX-ADM-PEI efficiently and selectively delivered both plasmid pEGFP-N1 and adriamycin to osteosarcoma cells with low cytotoxicity.
