Abstract

The epithelial permeation of water-soluble fluorescent PAMAM dendrons based on 7H-benz[de] benzimidazo [2,1-a] isoquinoline-7-one as a fluorescent core across epithelial cell models MDCK I and MDCK II has been quantified. Hydrodynamic radii have been derived from self-diffusion coefficients obtained via pulsed-gradient spin-echo Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (PGSE-NMR). Results indicate that these dendritic molecules are molecularly disperse, non-aggregating, and only slightly larger than their parent homologues. MDCK I permeability studies across epithelial barriers show that these dendritic molecules are biocompatible with the chosen epithelial in-vitro model and can permeate across MDCK cell monolayers. Permeability is demonstrated to be a property of dendritic size and cell barrier restrictiveness indicating that paracellular mechanisms play the predominant role in the transport of these molecules.
