Abstract

Schizophyllan is a polysaccharide that belongs to the β-(1 → 3)-glucan family and has been known to activate the immunity system. This paper reviews our recent finding that schizophyllan can form a macromolecular complex with single-stranded polynucleotides and this complex is applicable to a new class of gene carriers.
