Liposomes have become an important model in fundamental biomembrane research, including biophysical, biochemical, and cell biological studies of membranes and cell function. They are thoroughly studied in applications, such as drug delivery systems in medical applications and as controlled release systems, microencapsulating media, signal carriers, support matrices, and solubilizers in other applications. While medical applications have been extensively reviewed in recent literature, there is a need for easily accessible information on applications for liposomes beyond pharmacology and medicine.... level and mapping of the human genome, as well as improved ways to deliver recombinant genetic codes into appropriate cells. ... In addition to a aturn ona concept as described above (and in which gene therapy aims at replacing nonfunctional gene ... or to form a triple helix with DNA, and to stop the process, such as cancer, scar tissue, or other undesired cell growth. ... frequent dosing or development of self-replicating plasmids which remain in the cell nucleus during cell division.
