- n. any cation having more than one positive charge
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Increasing the charge increases the elasticity and tensile strength, because the adhesion between the polycation-coated platelets is stronger.
The first component is a linear, cyclodextrin-containing polycation that, when mixed with small interfering RNA (siRNA), binds to the anionic "backbone" of the siRNA.
