    Towards potential treatment of neurodegenerative disorders by nanomedicine gene therapy, a nonviral gene delivery system is created by complexation of novel PEGylated cationic lipid assemblies and a plasmid DNA encoding for the protein brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). The generated monoolein-based liquid crystalline nanocarriers for BDNF gene transfer are characterized by means of small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), cryogenic transmission electron microscopy (cryo-TEM) techniques, and turbidity measurements. Morphologically variable populations of sterically stabilized, PEGylated multicompartment nanoobjects, with confined supercoiled DNA, are established by cryo-TEM imaging. Synchrotron radiation SAXS measurements, performed with diluted nanoparticulate dispersions, evidence the inner multilamelar structure of pear-type vesicles and flexible onion-like objects functionalized by pBDNF. Obtained structural data are of fundamental interest for improvement of brain-targeted gene delivery.
