Lyophilized Lipid-based Transfection Reagent

LyoVec™ is the first lyophilized cationic lipid-based transfection reagent belonging to the new family of phosphonolipids originally described by Floch et al., as efficient transfection reagents both in vitro and in vivo [1-2].

Their positive charge enables them to bind to DNA, and their phospholipid structure promotes fusion with cellular membranes for DNA delivery.

The major constituent of LyoVec™ is the phosphonolipid DTCPTA, which is coupled with DiPPE, a neutral lipid that helps destabilizing membrane bilayers, therefore increasing the in vitro transfection efficiency of LyoVec™.
