Effective reversal of tumor immunosuppression is of critical importance in cancer therapy. A multifunctional delivery vector that can effectively deliver CRISPR-Cas9 plasmid for ß-catenin knockout to reverse tumor immunosuppression is constructed. The multi-functionalized delivery vector is decorated with aptamer-conjugated hyaluronic acid and peptide-conjugated hyaluronic acid to combine the tumor cell/nuclear targeting function of AS1411 with the cell penetrating/nuclear translocation function of TAT-NLS. Due to the significantly enhanced plasmid enrichment in malignant cell nuclei, the genome editing system can induce effective ß-catenin knockout and suppress Wnt/ß-catenin pathway, resulting in notably downregulated proteins involved in tumor progression and immunosuppression. Programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) downregulation in edited tumor cells not only releases the PD-1/PD-L1 brake to improve the cancer killing capability of CD8+ T cells, but also enhances antitumor immune responses of immune cells. This provides a facile strategy to reverse tumor immunosuppression and to restore immunosurveillance and activate anti-tumor immunity.

To enhance the treatment efficiency in tumor therapy, we developed a tumor-targeting protein-based delivery system, DOX&ICG@BSA-KALA/Apt, to efficiently integrate multimodal therapy with tumor imaging and realize synchronous photodynamic therapy/photothermal therapy/chemotherapy. In the delivery system, a chemotherapeutic drug (doxorubicin, DOX) and an optotheranostic agent (indocyanine green, ICG) were co-loaded in bovine serum albumin (BSA) via a hydrophobic-interaction-induced self-assembly to form stable DOX&ICG@BSA nanoparticles. After the decoration of a surface layer composed of a tumor-targeting aptamer (AS1411) and a cell-penetrating peptide (KALA), the obtained DOX&ICG@BSA-KALA/Apt nanoparticles exhibit a significantly improved multimodal cancer therapeutic efficiency due to the enhanced cancer cellular uptake mediated by AS1411 and KALA. In vitro and in vivo studies show that the multimodal theranostic system can efficiently inhibit tumor growth. In addition, the near-infrared fluorescent/photothermal dual-mode imaging enables accurate visualization of the therapeutic action in tumor sites. This study provides a facile strategy to construct self-assembled multimodal theranostic systems, and the functional protein-based theranostic system prepared holds great promise in multimodal cancer therapeutics.

A multiple-functionalized targeting delivery system was prepared by self-assembly for efficient delivery of Cas9/sgRNA plasmids to targeted tumor cell nuclei. The Cas9/sgRNA plasmids were compacted by protamine in the presence of calcium ions to form nanosized cores, which were further decorated by peptide and aptamer conjugated alginate derivatives. With the help of the nuclear location signal peptide and AS1411 aptamer with specific affinity for nucleolin in the tumor cell membrane and nuclei, the delivery vector can specifically deliver the plasmid to the nuclei of tumorous cells for knocking out the protein tyrosine kinase 2 (PTK2) gene to down-regulate focal adhesion kinase (FAK). The tumor cell apoptosis induced by genome editing is mitochondrial-dependent. In addition, FAK knockout results in negative regulation on the PI3K/AKT signaling pathway. Meanwhile, favorable modulation on various proteins involved in tumor progression can be realized by genome editing. The enhanced E-cadherin and decreased MMPs, vimentin, and VEGF imply the desirable effects of genome editing on suppression of tumor development. Wound healing and transwell assays confirm that the genome editing system can suppress tumor invasion and metastasis in edited cells efficiently. The investigation provides a facile and effective strategy to fabricate multiple-functionalized delivery vectors for genome editing.
