  • Publication number: 20210115075
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to novel nucleotide precursors and nucleotide analogs that can be incorporated into oligonucleotides, including double-stranded oligonucleotides such as siRNAs. Oligonucleotides containing these analogs have superior biological activity, for example, increased in vitro stability and improved in vivo potency especially duration of action. The improved oligonucleotides are useful for silencing (e.g., reducing or eradicating) the expression of a target gene. In particular embodiments, this invention encompasses specific nucleotide analogs to be included in double-stranded RNAs (dsRNAs), and especially in siRNAs, that can hybridize to messenger RNAs (mRNAs) of interest, so as to reduce or block the expression of target genes of interest. The present compounds have general formula (I), wherein each of Ra, Rb, Rc and Rd is independently, H or a (C1-C6) alkyl group and B is a heterocyclic nucleobase.

  • Patent number: 9107957
    Abstract: The present invention is directed compositions for targeted delivery of RNA interference (RNAi) polynucleotides to hepatocytes in vivo. Targeted RNAi polynucleotides are administered together with co-targeted melittin delivery peptides. Delivery peptides provide membrane penetration function for movement of the RNAi polynucleotides from outside the cell to inside the cell. Reversible modification provides physiological responsiveness to the delivery peptides.

  • Patent number: 8802773
    Abstract: The present invention is directed compositions for delivery of RNA interference (RNAi) polynucleotides to cells in vivo. The compositions comprise amphipathic membrane active polyamines reversibly modified with enzyme cleavable dipeptide-amidobenzyl-carbonate masking agents. Modification masks membrane activity of the polymer while reversibility provides physiological responsiveness. The reversibly modified polyamines (dynamic polyconjugate or DPC) are further covalently linked to an RNAi polynucleotide or co-administered with a targeted RNAi polynucleotide-targeting molecule conjugate.
