"The attractive perspective of this phosphorylcholine (PC)-based material is its propensity to condense DNA efficiently via the cationic DMAEMA block, as previously demonstrated for the respective homopolymer, with the MPC block acting as a biocompatible steric stabilizer. Two series of DMAEMA-MPC diblock copolymers were synthesized for evaluation, varying independently...
