Gene therapy has been expected as a medical approach to treat tumors, inheritable diseases and so on. For gene therapy, effective delivery of gene to the target tissue is vitally important. Previously, we have proposed a novel approach for gene therapy using a drug delivery system responding to cellular signal (D-RECS), especially to protein kinase C (PKC) α. PKCα plays an important role in the differentiation and proliferation of tumor cell. It was known that extraordinary activation of PKCα is seen in many cancers such as breast cancer, melanoma, liver cancer and so on. In this study, PKCα was used as a target protein kinase for D-RECS.
