Description

KALA is an amphiphilic peptide that forms an α-helical structure at physiological pH. KALA modifies a plasmid DNA-encapsulating liposomal membrane and is used as a fusogenic peptide in order to achieve effective liver targeting and transfection of DNA via galactose receptors[1].

In Vitro

When a plasmid DNA-encapsulating liposomal membrane is modified with the KALA peptide, transgene expression and immune activation are facilitated in bone marrow-derived dendritic cells (BMDCs)[1].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
