Abstract :

Having identified an oligonucleotide (ON) receptor in the HepG2 cell line, we have re-examined here the kinetics of ON uptake, subcellular distribution and intracellular localisation in these cells, at concentrations relevant for the study of a receptor-dependent process. Kinetic parameters of ON endocytosis were comparable with those of the receptor-mediated endocytosis tracer, transferrin (uptake equilibrium, saturation with concentration, specific competition and rapid efflux) and were clearly distinct from those of fluid-phase endocytosis.
