The specific delivery of ribonucleic acid (RNA) interfering molecules to disease-related cells is still a critical blockade for in vivo systemic treatment. Here, this study suggests a robust delivery carrier for targeted delivery of RNA-interfering molecules using galactosylated magnetic nanovectors (gMNVs). gMNVs are an organic-inorganic polymeric nanomaterial composed of polycationics and magnetic nanocrystal for delivery of RNA-interfering molecules and tracking via magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. In particular, the surface of gMNVs was modified by galactosylgluconic groups for targeted delivering to asialoglycoprotein receptor (ASGPR) of hepatocytes. Moreover, the small interfering RNAs were used to regulate target proteins related with low-density lipoprotein level and in vivo MR imaging was conducted for tracking of nanovectors. The obtained results show that the prepared gMNVs demonstrate potential as a systemic theragnostic nanoplatform for RNA interference and MR imaging.
