Various comb-type copolymer containing a polycation as a main chain was design to construct delivery systems of DNAs. The comb-type copolymers having cell-specific polysaccharides were proved to be useful to deliver DNA to the target cells in vivo. Of interest, the copolymers with abundant side chains of hydrophilic polymers are capable of stabilizing DNA triplex. Further, injectable nanoparticles for controlled releases of DNAs were fabricated from the copolymer and a biodegradable polymer.
