Within cytoplasm, AGO2 is the core effector for siRNA-induced silencing. The final destination for siRNA delivery should therefore be residing in AGO2. Inefficient delivery of siRNA into AGO2 could lead to reduction of RNAi and increased off-target effects, such as those effects induced by toll-like receptors and nonendonucleolytic ago protein paralogs [24,25]. Confocal fluorescence microscopy has been utilized to visualize the intracellular siRNA distribution in isolated cells [26]. For tissue samples transmission electron microscopy (TEM) has been used to reveal the presence of siRNA in subcellular compartments [21,27].

This passive leakage phenomenon has been characterized and termed the tumor-selective enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect [60,61]. Differing from macromolecular drugs, small molecules, which reach most normal tissues/organs as well as tumor tissues by diffusiondependent equilibrium, do not discriminate between tumor tissue and normal tissue. Passive targeting relies on a size-flow-tissue filtration that is generally limited to tumors and lymph nodes, so the EPR concept is popularly applied in the design of new anticancer Mechanisms and Barriers to RNAi Delivery 9 agents [62], and is important for nanoparticle and liposome delivery to cancer tissue.
