Objective : To observe the the natural nanomaterials chitosan wrapped stathmin gene short hairpin RNA (shRNA) expression plasmid-mediated transfected lung adenocarcinoma cell A549, whether the enhanced sensitivity of the cells to the chemotherapy drug paclitaxel , chitosan nanoparticles contained genes provide the basis of the particles in the biological treatment of lung adenocarcinoma . Method : build short hairpin RNA (shRNA) targeting stathmin gene eukaryotic expression plasmid and digestion , and sequencing ; liposome -mediated transfection of A549 cells , RT-PCR , Western Blot method to detect the target genes of the plasmid silent performance ; using complex coacervation the stathmin the chitosan -shRNA nanoparticles synthesis targeting ; nanoparticles of chitosan -shRNA gene complexes of cationic liposome transfected into A549 cells , MTT assay cells to chemotherapeutic agents paclitaxel sensitivity changes . Results: successfully constructed the shRNA targeting stathmin gene eukaryotic expression plasmid pGU6/GFP/Neo-shSTA ; A549 cells transfected stathmin gene mRNA and protein expression levels compared with the control group were significantly lower ( P lt; 0.05 ) ; successful prepared nanoparticles of chitosan -shRNA targeting stathmin ; the nanoparticles in cells transfected A549 cells can be detected obvious expression of the reporter gene (GFP) ; chitosan -shRNA nanoparticles , cationic liposome gene complexes transfected A549 cells group compared with the control group , half inhibition (IC50) was significantly lower ( P lt; 0.05 ) , the chitosan group to reduce the degree of less than the liposome group ( P lt; 0.05 ) . Conclusion : Plasmid pGU6/GFP/Neo-shSTA efficiently targeted silencing stathmin gene expression ; experiments prepared chitosan nanoparticles contained genes particles , successfully transfected A549 cells ; targeting the stathmin of chitosan -shSTA of nanoparticles transfected lung adenocarcinoma cells , can significantly enhance the sensitivity of the cells to the chemotherapy drug paclitaxel ; chitosan mediated shRNA transfection enhanced sensitivity to paclitaxel in A549 cells was lower than liposomes .
