摘要

Polyethyleneimine (PEI) is a cationic polymer that is effective in gene delivery in vivo. Plasmid DNA incorporating the Sleeping-Beauty (SB) transposon has been shown to induce long-term transgene expression in mouse lungs after PEI-mediated delivery. In the current report, we followed the reporter gene expression mediated by PEI/SB delivery in lungs of mice using the non-invasive bioluminescent imaging (BLI) technology. After delivery, the reporter gene signal showed a rapid decay in the first two weeks to a nearly undetectable level, but then the signal augmented gradually in the following weeks and finally reached a stable level that maintained until the natural death of animals. The stabilization of transgene expression is associated with the multiplication of a small number of PEI/SB-labeled alveolar cells, which proliferated both under normal conditions and in response to acute local injury for epithelia repair, and may play a role in long-term homeostatic maintenance in alveoli. The data presented here suggests that systemic delivery of PEI/SB induces stable transfection specifically in a small population of alveolar progenitor cells. The technique provides a promising platform for future research in distal lung biology and tissue regenerative therapy.
