Title
Dual gene targeted multimeric siRNA for combinatorial gene silencing
Abstract

Simultaneous silencing of multiple up-regulated genes is an attractive and viable strategy to treat many incurable diseases including cancer. Herein we report that multimerized siRNA conjugate composed of two different siRNA sequences in the same backbone shows more efficient inhibition of the two corresponding target genes at one time than physically mixed multimerized siRNA conjugates. Two model siRNAs against VEGF and GFP gene were chemically crosslinked via cleavable and noncleavable linkages for the preparation of dual gene targeted multimeric siRNA conjugates (DGT multi-siRNA). Cleavable DGT multi-siRNA with reducible disulfide linkages exhibited significantly higher gene silencing efficiencies at mRNA and protein expression levels than noncleavable DGT multi-siRNA, the physical mixture of naked siRNA, and that of single gene targeted multimeric siRNA (SGT multi-siRNA) with eliciting negligible immune response. DGT multi-siRNAs against two therapeutic siRNAs, anti-survivin and anti-bcl-2 targeted siRNA, also showed greatly enhanced apoptotic effect. This approach for concurrent suppression of combinatorial therapeutic target genes using cleavable multimeric siRNA structure can be potentially used for improved therapeutic efficacy.
