In this study, we introduced histidine residues into L-arginine grafted PAMAM G4 dendrimers to enhance proton buffering capacity and evaluated the physicochemical characteristics and transfection efficacies in vitro. The results showed that the synthesized PAMAM G4 derivatives effectively delivered pDNA inside cells and the transfection level improved considerably as the number of histidine residues increased. Grafting histidine residues into the established polymer vector PAMAM G4-arginine improved their proton buffering capacity. The cytotoxicity of PAMAM G4 derivatives was tested and it was confirmed that they displayed relatively lower cytotoxicity compared to PEI25KD in various cell lines. Also, confocal microscopy results revealed that PAMAM G4 derivatives effectively delivered pDNA into cells, particularly into the nucleus. These PAMAM dendrimer derivatives that conjugated with histidines and arginines may provide a promising polymeric gene carrier system.
