Calix[4]resorcarene-based macrocyclic glycocluster amphiphiles irreversibly form 5-nm sized micellar nanoparticles (GNPs) in water. They are agglutinated with Na2HPO4 via sugarto-phosphate hydrogen-bonding and also assembled on plasmid DNA in a number-, size-, and shape-controlled manner to give artificial glycoviruses of a size of 50 nm, which, depending on the saccharide moieties involved, are further aggregated. The glycoviruses are capable of endocytosis-mediated transfection
