- Novel sugar-conjugated cholesterols, β-Gal-, α-Man-, β-Man-, α-Fuc-, and β-Man-6P-S-β-Ala-Chol, were synthesized and incorporated into liposomes. In vitro experiments using the glyco-coated liposomes showed that the glyco-coated liposomes are efficiently taken up by cells expressing carbohydrate-binding receptors selectively. Glyco-coated liposomes are promising candidates for drug delivery vehicles.
