Re: Electrophoresis of ionic complexes

Thanks, canalon. That sounds a very good idea. Actually, only one of our polymers consists of a protonated amine group, while the others are quarternized (i.e., RN(CH3)+). However, it might be a good idea to try. As you may have guessed, this siRNA-polymer complex is for physiological ...
