Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats: Repetitive nucleic acid sequences that are principal components of the archaeal and bacterial CRISPR-CAS SYSTEMS, which function as adaptive antiviral defense systems.Inverted Repeat Sequences: Copies of nucleic acid sequence that are arranged in opposing orientation. They may lie adjacent to each other (tandem) or be separated by some sequence that is not part of the repeat (hyphenated). They may be true palindromic repeats, i.e. read the same backwards as forward, or complementary which reads as the base complement in the opposite orientation. Complementary inverted repeats have the potential to form hairpin loop or stem-loop structures which results in cruciform structures (such as CRUCIFORM DNA) when the complementary inverted repeats occur in double stranded regions.CRISPR-Associated Proteins: Protein components of the CRISPR-CAS SYSTEMS for anti-viral defense in ARCHAEA and BACTERIA. These are proteins that carry out a variety of functions during the creation and expansion of the CRISPR ARRAYS, the capture of new CRISPR SPACERS, biogenesis of SMALL INTERFERING RNA (CRISPR or crRNAs), and the targeting and silencing of invading viruses and plasmids. They include DNA HELICASES; RNA-BINDING PROTEINS; ENDONUCLEASES; and RNA and DNA POLYMERASES.RNA, Archaeal: Ribonucleic acid in archaea having regulatory and catalytic roles as well as involvement in protein synthesis.Streptococcus thermophilus: A species of thermophilic, gram-positive bacteria found in MILK and milk products.RNA Cleavage: A reaction that severs one of the sugar-phosphate linkages of the phosphodiester backbone of RNA. It is catalyzed enzymatically, chemically, or by radiation. Cleavage may be exonucleolytic, or endonucleolytic.RNA, Guide: Small kinetoplastid mitochondrial RNA that plays a major role in RNA EDITING. These molecules form perfect hybrids with edited mRNA sequences and possess nucleotide sequences at their 5'-ends that are complementary to the sequences of the mRNA's immediately downstream of the pre-edited regions.DNA, Intergenic: Any of the DNA in between gene-coding DNA, including untranslated regions, 5' and 3' flanking regions, INTRONS, non-functional pseudogenes, and non-functional repetitive sequences.

There are two classes of interspersed repetitive elements. Class I elements (or RETROELEMENTS - such as retrotransposons, retroviruses, LONG INTERSPERSED NUCLEOTIDE ELEMENTS and SHORT INTERSPERSED NUCLEOTIDE ELEMENTS) transpose via reverse transcription of an RNA intermediate. Class II elements (or DNA TRANSPOSABLE ELEMENTS - such as transposons, Tn elements, insertion sequence elements and mobile gene cassettes of bacterial integrons) transpose directly from one site in the DNA to another.Repetitive Sequences, Nucleic Acid: Sequences of DNA or RNA that occur in multiple copies. There are several types: INTERSPERSED REPETITIVE SEQUENCES are copies of transposable elements (DNA TRANSPOSABLE ELEMENTS or RETROELEMENTS) dispersed throughout the genome. TERMINAL REPEAT SEQUENCES flank both ends of another sequence, for example, the long terminal repeats (LTRs) on RETROVIRUSES. Variations may be direct repeats, those occurring in the same direction, or inverted repeats, those opposite to each other in direction. TANDEM REPEAT SEQUENCES are copies which lie adjacent to each other, direct or inverted (INVERTED REPEAT SEQUENCES).Bacteriophages: Viruses whose hosts are bacterial cells.Genome, Archaeal: The genetic complement of an archaeal organism (ARCHAEA) as represented in its DNA.Molecular Sequence Data: Descriptions of specific amino acid, carbohydrate, or nucleotide sequences which have appeared in the published literature and/or are deposited in and maintained by databanks such as GENBANK, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF), or other sequence repositories.Base Sequence: The sequence of PURINES and PYRIMIDINES in nucleic acids and polynucleotides. It is also called nucleotide sequence.RNA, Bacterial: Ribonucleic acid in bacteria having regulatory and catalytic roles as well as involvement in protein synthesis.Archaea: One of the three domains of life (the others being BACTERIA and Eukarya), formerly called Archaebacteria under the taxon Bacteria, but now considered separate and distinct. They are characterized by: (1) the presence of characteristic tRNAs and ribosomal RNAs; (2) the absence of peptidoglycan cell walls; (3) the presence of ether-linked lipids built from branched-chain subunits; and (4) their occurrence in unusual habitats. While archaea resemble bacteria in morphology and genomic organization, they resemble eukarya in their method of genomic replication. The domain contains at least four kingdoms: CRENARCHAEOTA; EURYARCHAEOTA; NANOARCHAEOTA; and KORARCHAEOTA.Pyrococcus furiosus: A species of strictly anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaea which lives in geothermally-heated marine sediments. It exhibits heterotropic growth by fermentation or sulfur respiration.Sequence Analysis, DNA: A multistage process that includes cloning, physical mapping, subcloning, determination of the DNA SEQUENCE, and information analysis.Archaeal Proteins: Proteins found in any species of archaeon.DNA, Bacterial: Deoxyribonucleic acid that makes up the genetic material of bacteria.Evolution, Molecular: The process of cumulative change at the level of DNA; RNA; and PROTEINS, over successive generations.Deoxyribonucleases: Enzymes which catalyze the hydrolases of ester bonds within DNA. EC 3.1.-.Genetic Engineering: Directed modification of the gene complement of a living organism by such techniques as altering the DNA, substituting genetic material by means of a virus, transplanting whole nuclei, transplanting cell hybrids, etc.Plasmids: Extrachromosomal, usually CIRCULAR DNA molecules that are self-replicating and transferable from one organism to another. They are found in a variety of bacterial, archaeal, fungal, algal, and plant species. They are used in GENETIC ENGINEERING as CLONING VECTORS.Multigene Family: A set of genes descended by duplication and variation from some ancestral gene. Such genes may be clustered together on the same chromosome or dispersed on different chromosomes. Examples of multigene families include those that encode the hemoglobins, immunoglobulins, histocompatibility antigens, actins, tubulins, keratins, collagens, heat shock proteins, salivary glue proteins, chorion proteins, cuticle proteins, yolk proteins, and phaseolins, as well as histones, ribosomal RNA, and transfer RNA genes. The latter three are examples of reiterated genes, where hundreds of identical genes are present in a tandem array. (King & Stanfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)Bacteria: One of the three domains of life (the others being Eukarya and ARCHAEA), also called Eubacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to OXYGEN: aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic; by the mode by which they obtain their energy: chemotrophy (via chemical reaction) or PHOTOTROPHY (via light reaction); for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: CHEMOLITHOTROPHY (from inorganic compounds) or chemoorganotrophy (from organic compounds); and by their source for CARBON; NITROGEN; etc.; HETEROTROPHY (from organic sources) or AUTOTROPHY (from CARBON DIOXIDE). They can also be classified by whether or not they stain (based on the structure of their CELL WALLS) with CRYSTAL VIOLET dye: gram-negative or gram-positive.Bacterial Proteins: Proteins found in any species of bacterium.Phylogeny: The relationships of groups of organisms as reflected by their genetic makeup.Genetic Variation: Genotypic differences observed among individuals in a population.RNA: A polynucleotide consisting essentially of chains with a repeating backbone of phosphate and ribose units to which nitrogenous bases are attached.

(Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)Escherichia coli: A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria (GRAM-NEGATIVE FACULTATIVELY ANAEROBIC RODS) commonly found in the lower part of the intestine of warm-blooded animals. It is usually nonpathogenic, but some strains are known to produce DIARRHEA and pyogenic infections. Pathogenic strains (virotypes) are classified by their specific pathogenic mechanisms such as toxins (ENTEROTOXIGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI), etc.Trinucleotide Repeats: Microsatellite repeats consisting of three nucleotides dispersed in the euchromatic arms of chromosomes.Tandem Repeat Sequences: Copies of DNA sequences which lie adjacent to each other in the same orientation (direct tandem repeats) or in the opposite direction to each other (INVERTED TANDEM REPEATS).Gene Transfer, Horizontal: The naturally occurring transmission of genetic information between organisms, related or unrelated, circumventing parent-to-offspring transmission. Horizontal gene transfer may occur via a variety of naturally occurring processes such as GENETIC CONJUGATION; GENETIC TRANSDUCTION; and TRANSFECTION. It may result in a change of the recipient organism's genetic composition (TRANSFORMATION, GENETIC).Trinucleotide Repeat Expansion: An increased number of contiguous trinucleotide repeats in the DNA sequence from one generation to the next. The presence of these regions is associated with diseases such as FRAGILE X SYNDROME and MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY. Some CHROMOSOME FRAGILE SITES are composed of sequences where trinucleotide repeat expansion occurs.Minisatellite Repeats: Tandem arrays of moderately repetitive, short (10-60 bases) DNA sequences which are found dispersed throughout the GENOME, at the ends of chromosomes (TELOMERES), and clustered near telomeres. Their degree of repetition is two to several hundred at each locus. Loci number in the thousands but each locus shows a distinctive repeat unit.Ankyrin Repeat: Protein motif that contains a 33-amino acid long sequence that often occurs in tandem arrays. This repeating sequence of 33-amino acids was discovered in ANKYRIN where it is involved in interaction with the anion exchanger (ANION EXCHANGE PROTEIN 1, ERYTHROCYTE). Ankyrin repeats cooperatively fold into domains that mediate molecular recognition via protein-protein interactions.Repetitive Sequences, Amino Acid: A sequential pattern of amino acids occurring more than once in the same protein sequence.Microsatellite Repeats: A variety of simple repeat sequences that are distributed throughout the GENOME. They are characterized by a short repeat unit of 2-8 basepairs that is repeated up to 100 times. They are also known as short tandem repeats (STRs).

In defense of phage: viral suppressors of CRISPR-mediated adaptive immunity in bacteria. (1/73)

Viruses that infect bacteria are the most abundant biological agents on the planet and bacteria have evolved diverse defense mechanisms to combat these genetic parasites. One of these bacterial defense systems relies on a repetitive locus, referred to as a CRISPR (clusters of regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats). Bacteria and archaea acquire resistance to invading viruses and plasmids by integrating short fragments of foreign nucleic acids at one end of the CRISPR locus. CRISPR loci are transcribed and the long primary CRISPR transcript is processed into a library of small RNAs that guide the immune system to invading nucleic acids, which are subsequently degraded by dedicated nucleases. However, the development of CRISPR-mediated immune systems has not eradicated phages, suggesting that viruses have evolved mechanisms to subvert CRISPR-mediated protection. Recently, Bondy-Denomy and colleagues discovered several phage-encoded anti-CRISPR proteins that offer new insight into the ongoing molecular arms race between viral parasites and the immune systems of their hosts.  (+info)

Comparative analysis ofCas6b processing and CRISPR RNA stability. (2/73)

The prokaryotic antiviral defense systems CRISP R (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)/Cas (CRISP Rassociated) employs short crRNAs (CRISP R RNAs) to target invading viral nucleic acids. A short spacer sequence of these crRNAs can be derived from a viral genome and recognizes a reoccurring attack of a virus via base complementarity. We analyzed the effect of spacer sequences on the maturation of crRNAs of the subtype I-B Methanococcus maripaludis C5 CRISP R cluster. The responsible endonuclease, termed Cas6b, bound non-hydrolyzable repeat RNA as a dimer and mature crRNA as a monomer. Comparative analysis of Cas6b processing of individual spacer-repeat-spacer RNA substrates and crRNA stability revealed the potential influence of spacer sequence and length on these parameters. Correlation of these observations with the variable abundance of crRNAs visualized by deep-sequencing analyses is discussed. Finally, insertion of spacer and repeat sequences with archaeal poly-T termination signals is suggested to be prevented in archaeal CRISP R/Cas systems.  (+info)

Functional elucidation of causal genetic variants and elements requires precise genome editing technologies. The type II prokaryotic CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)/Cas adaptive immune system has been shown to facilitate RNA-guided site-specific DNA cleavage. We engineered two different type II CRISPR/Cas systems and demonstrate that Cas9 nucleases can be directed by short RNAs to induce precise cleavage at endogenous genomic loci in human and mouse cells. Cas9 can also be converted into a nicking enzyme to facilitate homology-directed repair with minimal mutagenic activity. Lastly, multiple guide sequences can be encoded into a single CRISPR array to enable simultaneous editing of several sites within the mammalian genome, demonstrating easy programmability and wide applicability of the RNA-guided nuclease technology ...
CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) and Cas (CRISPR-associated proteins) play a critical role in adaptive immunity against mobile genetic elements, especially phages, through their ability to acquire novel spacer sequences. Polarized spacer acquisition results in spacer polymorphism and temporal organization of CRISPR loci, making them attractive epidemiological markers. Group B Streptococcus (GBS), a genital commensal for 10 to 30% of healthy women and a major neonatal pathogen, possesses a ubiquitous and functional CRISPR1 locus. Our aim was to assess the CRISPR1 locus as an epidemiological marker to follow vaginal carriage of GBS in women. This study also allowed us to observe the evolution of the CRISPR1 locus in response to probable phage infection occurring in vivo.We followed carriage of GBS among 100 women over an eleven-year period, with a median duration of approximately two years. The CRISPR1 locus was highly conserved over time. The isolates that show the same
In this study, we developed a cloning-free CRISPR/Cas-mediated genome editing system for highly efficient and convenient one-step generation of knock-in mice carrying a functional gene cassette. This system has several advantages. First, the CRISPR/Cas vector construction and in vitro RNA transcription can be omitted by using commercially available Cas9 protein and chemically synthesized crRNA and tracrRNA, leading to a cloning-free CRISPR/Cas system. Although chemical synthesis of sgRNA might also be possible and convenient, technical limitations for the synthesis of long sgRNAs (more than 100 mer) must be considered. In contrast, shorter crRNAs and tracrRNAs can be chemically synthesized easily in a cost-effective manner. Furthermore, tracrRNAs can be commonly used independently of target sequences as well as Cas9 protein. The targeting vectors are already chemically synthesizable. Second, the efficiency of CRISPR/Cas-mediated digestion can be evaluated with a cell-free IDA system using target ...
The Alt-R® CRISPR-Cas9 crRNA ordering tool (accessible at www.idtdna.com/CRISPR-Cas9) accommodates 19 and 20 nucleotide (nt) protospacer sequences; however, we recommend 20 nt sequences for most experiments. Other formats can be ordered as custom RNAs.. There are reports in the literature suggesting that CRISPR-Cas9 nuclease specificity can be improved through use of truncated guide RNAs [1]. For example, 17 nt protospacer elements have been reported to reduce off-target effects.. In contrast, our research investigating the effect of shorter protospacer element length on CRISPR-Cas9 nuclease specificity demonstrated that 20 nt protospacer elements were optimal, with 19 nt protospacers providing similar strong editing efficacy in most cases (see figure). When using Alt-R S.p. HiFi Cas9 Nuclease, 20 nt protospacer sequences provide the greatest amount of genomic editing (data not shown).. ...
Sequence-directed genetic interference pathways control gene expression and preserve genome integrity in all kingdoms of life. In many bacteria and most archaea, clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeats (CRISPRs) specify a recently discovered genetic interference pathway that protects cells from viruses (phages) and conjugative plasmids. Within CRISPR sequences, the repeats are separated by short spacer sequences that match phage or plasmid genomes and specify the targets of interference. Spacer sequences are transcribed into CRISPR RNAs (crRNAs) - small RNAs that, through base-pairing interactions with the target sequence, guide Cas nucleases to the invasive nucleic acid. Upon infection, CRISPR arrays can acquire new repeat-spacer units that match the infecting phage or plasmid. Therefore CRISPR-Cas systems provide adaptive and inheritable immunity to the bacterial cell. The spacer content of CRISPR arrays reflects the many different invaders encountered by the host and can ...
The CRISPR-associated protein Cas9 is an RNA-guided endonuclease that cleaves double-stranded DNA bearing sequences complementary to a 20-nucleotide segment in the guide RNA. Cas9 has emerged as a versatile molecular tool for genome editing and gene expression control. RNA-guided DNA recognition and cleavage strictly require the presence of a protospacer adjacent motif (PAM) in the target DNA. Here we report a crystal structure of Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 in complex with a single-molecule guide RNA and a target DNA containing a canonical 5-NGG-3 PAM. The structure reveals that the PAM motif resides in a base-paired DNA duplex. The non-complementary strand GG dinucleotide is read out via major-groove interactions with conserved arginine residues from the carboxy-terminal domain of Cas9. Interactions with the minor groove of the PAM duplex and the phosphodiester group at the +1 position in the target DNA strand contribute to local strand separation immediately upstream of the PAM. These ...

First, a DNA molecule is introduced into a cell that encodes the Cas9 protein and also encodes an RNA molecule that has both the scaffold sequence and a sequence that will bind to location on the genome to be cut. Following transcription and translation the Cas9 protein binds to the scaffold section of the gRNA. This forms a gRNA-Cas9 complex causing a conformational change in the Cas9 protein enabling the RNA-protein complex to bind to double stranded DNA at loci defined by the guide RNA. This guide must contain the sequence NGG, the Protospacer Adjacent Motif (PAM) at the 3 end (see figure 1 PAM section). It is important to note that the NGG PAM sequence is not in the guide RNA molecule, but must be in the genome to allow cleavage.. Whether the PAM bound-Cas9 cleaves the DNA strands depends on base pairing between one of the genomic DNA strands and the targeting region of the gRNA (figure 1). Base pairing begins at the 3 end of the gRNA targeting region and propagates along towards the 5 ...
Successful gene knockout allows investigators to study gene function and identify redundant and epistatic genes. Investigators have attempted site-directed modification of target genes using natural DNA repair mechanisms; however, the efficiency of natural recombination is low and lacks repeatability. Simpler and more effective approaches to gene knockout/knock-in have been developed, including engineered endonuclease techniques. ZFN (Xiao et al. 2011) and TALEN (Boch and Bonas 2010; Bonas et al. 1989) are widely used tools, but the construct design and experimental procedures are complex. CRISPR/Cas9 is replacing ZFN and TALEN technologies because it is simpler and faster (Mussolino and Cathomen 2013).. Gene editing using the CRISPR/Cas9 system has been well developed, allowing the knockout of single or multiple genes simultaneously. CRISPR/Cas9 has been used to generate stable knockout cell lines (HEK293 cells, induced pluripotent stem cells) and knockout animals (mouse, rat, and zebrafish) ...

Bacteria and archaea have evolved an adaptive, heritable immune system that recognizes and protects against viruses or plasmids. This system, known as the CRISPR/Cas system, allows the host to recognize and incorporate short foreign DNA or RNA sequences, called spacers into its CRISPR system. Spacers in the CRISPR system provide a record of the history of bacteria and phage coevolution. We use a physical model to study the dynamics of this coevolution as it evolves stochastically over time. We focus on the impact of mutation and recombination on the evolution and evasion of bacteria and phages. We discuss the effect of different spacer deletion mechanisms on the coevolutionary dynamics. We make predictions about bacteria and phage population growth, spacer diversity within the CRISPR locus, and spacer protection against the phage population. An important feature of this coevolution is the multiple loci in the phages from which CRISPR may sample genetic material. We construct a model with ...
The CRISPR/Cas gene editing system has a lot of buzz behind it: an amusingly crunchy name, an intriguing origin, and potential uses both in research labs and even in the clinic. We heard that Emory scientists are testing it, so an explainer was in order.. The CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) system was originally discovered by dairy industry researchers seeking to prevent phages, the viruses that infect bacteria, from ruining the cultures used to make cheese and yogurt. Bacteria incorporate small bits of DNA from phages into their CRISPR region and use that information to fight off the phages by chewing up their DNA.. At Emory, infectious disease specialist David Weiss has published research on CRISPR in some types of pathogenic bacteria, showing that they need parts of the CRISPR system to evade their hosts and stay infectious. Biologist Bruce Levin has modeled CRISPR-mediated immunity’s role in bacterial evolution.. What has attracted considerable ...
Functional elucidation of causal genetic variations and genetic elements requires precise genome manipulation technologies. We have recently developed a new class of eukaryotic genome engineering technology based on the bacterial CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) adaptive immune system. We reconstituted the CRISPR crRNA processing and interference system in mammalian cells and demonstrate that the Cas9 nuclease can be targeted to specific genomic loci by short crRNA guides to induce DNA double strand breaks. In a variety of cell types and species, Cas9 mediates editing of endogenous chromatin. Here we describe most recent advances for the Cas9 technology through interrogation and enhancement of targeting specificity, conversation of Cas9 into a modular DNA targeting domain, as well as application of the Cas9 system to probe gene function and genetic variations. Our results demonstrate the versatility of the RNA-guided CRISPR Cas9 nuclease system and open the ...
Abstract: CRISPR/Cas systems are employed by bacteria and archaea as a defense against invading viruses and plasmids. Recently, the type II CRISPR/Cas system from the bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes has been engineered to function in eukaryotic systems using two molecular components: a single Cas9 protein and a non-coding guide RNA (gRNA). The Cas9 endonuclease can be programmed with a single gRNA, directing a DNA double-strand break at a desired genomic location. The cell then activates endogenous DNA repair processes, either non-homologous end joining or homology-directed repair to heal the targeted double-strand break. This talk will focus on the CRISPR/Cas9 system for genome engineering. Topics will include (i) how to utilize the system for gene knockout or targeted integration, (ii) design, efficiency and specificity of CRISPR, and (iII) how to introduce and validate this nuclease in your model system.. 09.30: Coffee break. 10.00: Crispr gene knockout and knockin: dissection of metabolic ...
Restriction-modification systems, abortive-phage phenotypes, toxin-antitoxins and other innate defense systems, in the past, have been shown in familiar chapters in typical microbiology textbook, while now what if I say in prokaryotes world "RISC" can serve a role for new kind of antiviral defense, in addition the "RNAi" can even be engineered and designed to lead to target gene silencing, would you believe me?. You must have ever heard CRISPR/Cas (CRISPR Associated proteins) System if you have ever read this Science paper [1]. Exactly as the title said, CRISPR, Clustered Regularly Inter-spaced Short Palindromic Repeat, serves as the leading role to provide the "memory" as an adaptive immunity, akin to a blacklist of unwanted visitors, like plasmids or viruses genome.. CRISPR/Cas has different types based on Cas family. Three modules of Cas proteins are Cmr, Cst, Csa. It is an old story in bacteria world as it had been firstly identified in E.coli in 1987.

Viruses have a major influence on all types of cellular life including eukaryotes, bacteria and archaea. To protect themselves against infection, prokaryotes have developed multiple defence barriers of various complexity, including prevention of adsorption, blocking of injection or degradation of the foreign nucleic acid (Sturino and Klaenhammer, 2006; Labrie et al, 2010). Recently, an adaptive microbial immune system, named clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPRs), has been identified that provides acquired immunity against viruses and plasmids (Barrangou et al, 2007). It consists of an array of short conserved DNA‐repeat sequences that are interspaced by stretches of variable sequence called spacers, which generally originate from phage or plasmid DNA (Bolotin et al, 2005; Mojica et al, 2005). A set of cas (CRISPR‐associated) genes is typically located in the vicinity to repeat‐spacer array (Jansen et al, 2002; Makarova et al, 2006). CRISPR, in combination with ...
Human genome engineering has been transformed by the introduction of the CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)/Cas (CRISPR‐associated) system found in most bacteria and archaea
Recent adaptation of the CRISPR/Cas9 bacterial system to facilitate manipulation of mammalian genomes has provided a real breakthrough for genome editing applications. Development of whole-genome CRISPR libraries with the aim of generating gene knockouts for every single coding sequence has allowed forward genetic screening in mammalian cells with unprecedented efficiency and versatility. CRISPR/Cas9 approaches, however, rely on phenotypes associated with loss-of-function mutations.
In recent years, CRISPRs (Clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeats) have been gaining popularity in the microbiology field. Briefly, CRISPRs serve as an adaptive immune system for bacteria, meaning that they are able to remember what viruses (bacteriophages) or other entities have infected them and mount a targeted defensive response the next time they are infected with the same entity (think of it as an analog to our adaptive immune response which uses antibodies and other agents to target invading microbes). More specifically, the CRISPR-Cas (Cas are the CRISPR associated genes) system facilitates the integration of a small section of the foreign genomic DNA into the CRISPR array within the bacterial genome (see left side of the detailed diagram below). While in the array, this section of foreign DNA will serve as a template for recognizing the invading genome again if another infection occurs, and the template will be used for targeting that invading genome for rapid ...
An article recently published in Nature (Gaudelli et al., 2017) reports an approach of altering DNA sequences without cleaving the DNA strands. This method of gene editing, exploits a modified version of the CRISPR-Cas9 system and an RNA-based deamination enzyme.INTRODUCTION: GENOME-EDITING BIOTECHNOLOGIESThe clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat (CRISPR) technology is widely used to mediate genome-editing in a variety of species (Sander and Joung, 2014; Barrangou and Doudna, 2016). CRISPR, a microbial cellular immunity system (Barrangou et al., 2007), allows the precise editing of DNA sequences and interrogation of regulatory elements, gene function, and protein networks (Doudna and Charpentier, 2014; Zhang et al., 2014; Amitai and Sorek, 2016). This function requires the presence of a set of CRISPR-associated (Cas) genes, which usually are found adjacent to the CRISPR locus. The wild-type Cas9 endonuclease and its different variants (Jinek et al., 2012; Cong et al., 2013; Qi et al.,

CRISPR or clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeat sequences are commonly found in bacteria and function as part of their innate immune system to counter foreign nucleic acids such as viruses and plasmids. CRISPR DNA sequences are translated into CRISPR RNAs (crRNAs) which complex with Cas or (CRISPR-associated) proteins to bring about cleavage of invading DNA. These systems…
Strikingly, this was not the case if the parental cross was simply reversed and mothers now contained Act5C-Cas9 and U6-gRNAs (Figure 2B and Figure S1). We found progeny with disrupted GAL4 transgenes even when U6-gRNAs, Act5C-Cas9, or both were absent in the offspring genome (Figure 2, B2-B4). For example, in the complete absence of genetically encoded CRISPR/Cas9 components, ,90% of somatic neurons still contained dGAL4 (GFP cell count = 810 ± 174, n = 2) (Figure 2B4). Since the maternal genome contains both CRISPR/Cas9 components, we reasoned that offspring somatic GAL4 genes were targeted by maternally contributed gRNAs and Cas9 endonuclease present in the female gamete (egg). This is supported by the observation that GFP can be deposited into embryos by a maternal Act5C-GFP transgene (Reichhart and Ferrandon 1998). To directly verify the presence of Cas9 protein in the eggs from the Act5C-Cas9 transgene, we performed anti-Cas9 embryo immunostaining at early developmental stages (0-2 hr ...

The experts predicting cancer cures are the relatively sober, realistic ones, Julia - weve got CRISPR teams living the sci-fi dream, sticking preserved mammoth genes into elephant cells. The CRISPR-Cas9 editing process still looks like the revolutionary development its been touted as over the last four years, and research hums along at a remarkable pace. Still, some of the more dramatic projections surely wont pan out, and those that do will have to overcome all kinds of stumbling blocks - biological, ethical, legal, ecological, and, yes, financial.. Lets catch everyone up on what were talking about. The immune systems of certain bacteria use DNA sequences called CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats), containing genetic material collected from viruses the bacteria have been exposed to. When one of these viruses attacks again, the matching CRISPR segment gets copied to an RNA molecule (remember from bio class? Like DNA, but just one strand?) that tracks down and ...
Previous efforts to target the mouse genome for the addition, subtraction, or substitution of biologically informative sequences required complex vector design and a series of arduous steps only a handful of laboratories could master. The facile and inexpensive clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) method has now superseded traditional means of genome modification such that virtually any laboratory can quickly assemble reagents for developing new mouse models for cardiovascular research. Here, we briefly review the history of CRISPR in prokaryotes, highlighting major discoveries leading to its formulation for genome modification in the animal kingdom. Core components of CRISPR technology are reviewed and updated. Practical pointers for 2-component and 3-component CRISPR editing are summarized with many applications in mice including frameshift mutations, deletion of enhancers and noncoding genes, nucleotide substitution of protein-coding and gene regulatory ...
A startup says it has discovered a new CRISPR enzyme for editing DNA, one of the hottest areas in biotech. Naturally, it is going to give it away for free.. Wait, what?. "This is a true gift were giving to the community because I truly believe this technology is so important that holding it or restricting it is not the company that Inscripta wants to be," says Kevin Ness, the chief executive of the company, Inscripta, which was formerly Muse Bio and is based in Boulder, Colo.. CRISPR, short for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, refers to repeated patterns seen in bacterial DNA. Microbes use them as part of an immune system that kills viruses, but scientists have harnessed certain CRISPR enzymes to rapidly cut DNA, making it possible to edit genetic code much more easily. Groups at The University of California, Berkeley, and The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have been involved in a pitched battle over the rights to the first CRISPR enzyme, Cas9, which has become ...
It wont be long before the term clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) will become a household term. This revolutionary yet incredibly controversial technology may significantly change the way our genes are expressed. However, strenuous debates over safety and ethical matters have to be settled to allow the advent of therapeutic or cosmetic gene editing. But first, let us discuss what CRISPR is and why researchers are making such a big deal out of it.. CRISPR are segments of genetic material that are used as a guide to search for repeats of that identical piece of genes in cells. Once located, CRISPR associated proteins (Cas) will then act like a pair of scissors to cut out that piece of the gene; Cas are also known as endonuclease enzymes. Put simply, the CRISPR/Cas9 system can locate a piece of genetic material inside a cell - or, hypothetically, a body - with a high level of precision and cut that piece out, thus altering the DNA and the fate of new proteins. ...

Since its inception, CRISPR has gained strong traction from the global research community because of its huge potential in diverse applications. Considering CRISPRs disruptive and game-changing applications, a number of large and small participants have invested in this domain. Along the same line, CRISPR has witnessed a multi-fold uptake in funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other government agencies. As a result, these investments have led to significant growth in new product and application development, thereby creating new market segments and revenue growth opportunities for existing companies and new entrants. In 2017, the CRISPR/Cas9 tools market opportunity will likely be about $1.8 to $2 billion. The therapeutics and agriculture segments will contribute the most revenue potential. The market is currently highly fragmented, with a handful of global participants and a large number of application-focused participants operating in their respective segments. Competition in the
CRISPR/ Cas9 gene editing is rapidly becoming the state of the art for mouse genome engineering. During the last year, the OHSU Transgenic Mouse Models Core has successfully used this technology to generate both targeted gene knock-outs and point mutation knock-ins for its clients.. The Transgenic Mouse Models Core has revised its CRISPR pricing structure for 2016. Non-homologous end joining-based gene knock-outs for OHSU investigators will be $2100 per project (150 injections), with the user responsible for design and validation of targeting strategy. CRISPR-based point mutation projects will temporarily remain at $1500 until this approach is considered routine. The same pricing applies for projects aimed at inserting larger fragments of DNA such as epitope tags, loxP recognition sites, fluorescent proteins, or similar insertion strategies. Exploratory technique pricing requires additional consultation with the core for approval.. A new, streamlined option has been added for users with less ...

The ease with which the CRISPR methodology can be applied might lead to ethical concerns. In 2015, a team of Chinese researchers reported their efforts to genetically modify human embryos using CRISPR/Cas9 technology, and although the study did not yield a successfully engineered human, it set off a firestorm of controversy worldwide on the use of human embryos in research.17 Many have voiced a concern that the simplicity of editing the human genome will result in the production of "designer babies."13 Others claim that these efforts are doomed because they are attempting to leap beyond our existing technological capabilities.17 In either case, as the CRISPR technology advances, its likely that the ethical debate will continue regarding which applications of CRISPR/Cas are universally acceptable.10 Current limitations of CRISPR revolve around a few imperfections in the technology. For one, our cells have several different DNA repair mechanisms, and while the repair is predictable, its not ...

The Melbourne Advanced Genome Editing Centre (MAGEC) was established in 2013 by the Herold lab, with the aim of developing CRISPR/Cas9 technology for gene editing within WEHI. The lab was able to adapt the CRISPR/Cas9 system into a novel inducible lentiviral platform for rapid and efficient modification of genes in cell lines and primary cells (Aubrey et al., Cell Reports 2015). During this time, MAGEC successfully translated their expertise in CRISPR/Cas9 technology into the generation of gene-targeted mice.. To date, the MAGEC lab has successfully used CRISPR/Cas9 to generate ~ 100 mouse models with constitutive gene knockouts, conditional alleles, epitope tags, single-base substitutions and gene knock-ins. The lab is highly experienced in designing gene targeting strategies, including sgRNA design, generating vectors for homologous recombination and genotyping targeted mice with next-generation sequencing.. The mouse production at WEHI is performed within an extremely clean animal facility, ...

The all-consuming news story in biology this year-this decade really-is the discovery of the CRISPR/Cas9 system and its practical application for gene editing. At least three other essays in this book mention or refer to this new technology; there have been numerous articles in the popular press. Most of that attention has been directed at the tremendous and potentially dangerous power of this new technology: it allows "editing" the DNA of genomes, including those of humans, in a way that would be permanent-that is heritable through generations.. All this attention on the possible uses and misuses of CRISPR/Cas9 has obscured the real news-which is, in a way, old news. CRISPR/Cas9 is the fruit of years of fundamental research conducted by a few dedicated researchers who were interested in the arcane field of bacterial immunity. Not immunity to bacteria as you might at first think, but how bacteria protect themselves against attack by viruses. Weird as it may seem, there are viruses that ...
CRISPR (which stands for clustered regularly interspaced palindromic repeats) is a DNA editing system that enables sensitive gene editing in a variety of organisms, including human embryos[2,3]. It is paired with a protein called Cas9 that serves as an endonuclease, an enzyme that cuts DNA at specific sites. The ability to cut DNA at precise locations is important because it allows scientists to insert or delete genes, allowing for the "manipulation of genes" that we all talk about. The CRISPR-Cas9 system comes from a recently-discovered yet ancient defense system used by bacteria and archaea against invading viruses (think of it as a bacterial immune system). Since its original discovery, several scientists have recognized that we can harness CRISPRs original immune function to cut and edit whatever DNA we want at precise locations. The original system has been modified to increase its effectiveness not only in genome editing, but also to function as a complex that can bind DNA at precise ...

In its five years of existence, CRISPR/Cas9 has revolutionized the field of gene editing, allowing researchers to edit DNA like a piece of text. While its potential is unquestionable, ethics and safety concerns have prevented CRISPR from being used to treat human diseases. Now, scientists at the Salk Institute have found a way around one of those hurdles, modifying the CRISPR system to treat several diseases in mice without cutting DNA, which means they avoid unwanted mutations. The technology works epigenetically, influencing gene activity without changing the DNA sequence ...

Kctd6 - mouse gene knockout kit via CRISPR, all-in-one CAS9 guide RNA cloning vector, ready for the target sequence cloning for your genome editing using CRISPR/CAS9
Inspired by work from the Calarco lab (Friedland et al., 2013) concerning CRISPR/CAS9, I have been investigating if unc-22 could be utilized as a convenient marker for CRISPR/CAS9 system activity. A single sgRNA guide (GGAGAAGGAGGCGGTGCTGG) was designed to target the unc-22 locus (termed unc-22-sgRNA-1000, since it was the 1000th sgRNA of those predicted to lay within the unc-22 gene). Since Friedland and colleagues demonstrated simultaneous CRISPR activity of two independent sgRNAs on two different loci, I assumed that it would be useful to evaluate/discriminate between transformed animals by selecting only those that engage the proper CAS9 activity. Below, I describe three experiments that show that the above unc-22-sgRNA-1000 worked consistently and efficiently in my hands. Experiment 1. In a preliminary attempt, I injected unpurified PCR product (synthesized by PCR stitching, resulting in pU6:unc-22-sg1000) diluted with an injection mix containing ~200ng/µl of peft-3::CAS9 encoding plasmid ...

Salmonella is recognized as one of the most common microbial pathogens worldwide. The bacterium contains the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-CRISPR-associated (Cas) systems, providing adaptive immunity against invading foreign nucleic acids. Previous studies suggested that certain bacteria employ the Cas proteins of CRISPR-Cas systems to target their own genes, which also alters the virulence during invasion of mammals. However, whether CRISPR-Cas systems in Salmonella have similar functions during bacterial invasion of host cells remains unknown. Here, we systematically analyzed the genes that are regulated by Cas3 in a type I-E CRISPR-Cas system and the virulence changes due to the deletion of cas3 in Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis. Compared to the cas3 gene wild-type (cas3 WT) Salmonella strain, cas3 deletion upregulated the lsrFGBE genes in lsr (luxS regulated) operon related to quorum sensing (QS) and downregulated biofilm-forming-related genes and
CRISPR-Cas systems are common in prokaryotes and can provide small RNA-based adaptive immunity against mobile genetic elements. A CRISPR-Cas system consists of DNA loci with Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) and CRISPR ass
In addition to defense against foreign DNA, the CRISPR-Cas9 system of Francisella novicida represses expression of an endogenous immunostimulatory lipoprotein. We investigated the specificity and molecular mechanism of this regulation, demonstrating that Cas9 controls a highly specific regulon of four genes that must be repressed for bacterial virulence. Regulation occurs through a protospacer adjacent motif (PAM)-dependent interaction of Cas9 with its endogenous DNA targets, dependent on a non-canonical small RNA (scaRNA) and tracrRNA. The limited complementarity between scaRNA and the endogenous DNA targets precludes cleavage, highlighting the evolution of scaRNA to repress transcription without lethally targeting the chromosome. We show that scaRNA can be reprogrammed to repress other genes, and with engineered, extended complementarity to an exogenous target, the repurposed scaRNA:tracrRNA-FnoCas9 machinery can also direct DNA cleavage. Natural Cas9 transcriptional interference likely ...
The cell line engineering segment accounts for the largest share of the Global CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing market", says RNCOS. Genomic engineering in cell lines is a diversified tool for studying gene function, designing diseases models, biopharmaceutical research, drug discovery, and many other applications. For these, the Nuclease-based methods, particularly the CRISPR/Cas9 method, offer an efficient way of controlled gene insertion. A pseudoviral-packaged lentiviral sgRNA and Cas9 construct can be highly efficiently transduced and integrated into virtually any mammalian cells. For instance, CRISPR knockout cells generated using lentiviral CRISPR sgRNA expression vectors are being used to stably introduce and integrate an appropriate sgRNA and Cas9 nuclease.. The cell engineering application has generated the highest revenue for CRISPR market. One of the major factors attributing the growth are scalability of CRISPR/Cas9 in modifying the multiple sites within the mammalian genome providing a ...
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) consist of highly conserved direct repeats interspersed with variable spacer sequences. They can protect bacteria against invasion by foreign DNA elements. The genome sequence of Streptococcus mutans strain UA159 contains two CRISPR loci, designated CRISPR1 and CRISPR2. The aims of this study were to analyse the organization of CRISPR in further S. mutans strains and to investigate the importance of CRISPR in acquired immunity to M102-like phages. The sequences of CRISPR1 and CRISPR2 arrays were determined for 29 S. mutans strains from different persons. More than half of the CRISPR1 spacers and about 35 % of the CRISPR2 spacers showed sequence similarity with the genome sequence of M102, a virulent siphophage specific for S. mutans. Although only a few spacers matched the phage sequence completely, most of the mismatches had no effect on the amino acid sequences of the phage-encoded proteins. The results suggest that S. mutans ...
Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR)/CRISPR-associated protein (Cas) is used by some bacteria and most archaea to protect against viral phage intrusion and has recently been adapted to allow for efficient editing of the mammalian genome. Whilst CRISPR/Cas-based technology has been used to modify genes in mammalian cells in vitro, delivery of CRISPR/Cas system into mammalian tissue and/or organs is more difficult and often requires additional vectors. With the use of adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene delivery system, active CRISPR/Cas enzyme can be maintained for an extended period of time and enable efficient editing of genome in the retina in vivo ...
The focus of our lab is to understand malignant cell cycle entry and its various aspects in cancer development. To do so, we apply CRISPR/Cas gene editing systems to perform low and high diversity screens in addition to gene replacement by combining CRISPR/Cas and rAAV homology templates. To intensify our efforts, we are seeking an outstanding and ambitious postdoctoral...
The applications of CRISPR will likely revolutionize genetic engineering, allowing scientists to engineer any part of the human genome with exceptionally accurate precision. Caribou Biosciences, a Berkeley based company, specializes in utilizing the Cas9 enzym, an extremely efficient genome editing platform. Dr. Haurwitz, of Caribou noted: "I would say that Cas9, like other site-specific genome engineering technologies such as TALENs (transcription activator-like effector nucleases) or ZFNs (zinc finer nucleases), does have the capability of being deployed appropriately in a therapeutic context to modify patients cells at the genomic level in order to either repair disease causing genes or otherwise prevent infections. For example Sangamo Biosciences, which is a company here in the Bay Area, has clinical trials ongoing where they are using ZFN technology to modify T-cells or stem cells in order to knock out the receptor that is necessary for HIV infections. So they are using site specific genome ...
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/CRISPR-associated (Cas) systems provide bacteria and archaea with adaptive immunity against viruses and plasmids by using CRISPR RNAs (crRNAs) to guide the silencing of invading nucleic acids. We show here that in a subset of these systems, the mature crRNA that is base-paired to trans-activating crRNA (tracrRNA) forms a two-RNA structure that directs the CRISPR-associated protein Cas9 to introduce double-stranded (ds) breaks in target DNA. At sites complementary to the crRNA-guide sequence, the Cas9 HNH nuclease domain cleaves the complementary strand, whereas the Cas9 RuvC-like domain cleaves the noncomplementary strand. The dual-tracrRNA:crRNA, when engineered as a single RNA chimera, also directs sequence-specific Cas9 dsDNA cleavage. Our study reveals a family of endonucleases that use dual-RNAs for site-specific DNA cleavage and highlights the potential to exploit the system for RNA-programmable genome editing.. -end && ...
CRISPR-Cas systems are adaptive immune systems in bacteria and archaea, consisting of a clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) array and CRISPR associated (Cas) proteins. In this work, the type I-E CRISPR-Cas system of Escherichia coli was studied.. CRISPR-Cas immunity is divided into three stages. In the first stage, adaptation, Cas1 and Cas2 store memory of invaders in the CRISPR array as short intervening sequences, called spacers. During the expression stage, the array is transcribed, and subsequently processed into small CRISPR RNAs (crRNA), each consisting of one spacer and one repeat. The crRNAs are bound by the Cascade multi-protein complex. During the interference step, Cascade searches for DNA molecules complementary to the crRNA spacer. When a match is found, the target DNA is degraded by the recruited Cas3 nuclease.. Host factors required for integration of new spacers into the CRISPR array were first investigated. Deleting recD, involved in DNA repair, ...
Genome editing technologies have advanced significantly over the past few years, providing a fast and effective tool to precisely manipulate the genome at specific locations. The three commonly used genome editing technologies are Zinc Finger Nucleases (ZFNs), Transcription Activator-Like Effector Nucleases (TALENs), and the Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR)-associated Cas9 (CRISPR/Cas9) system. ZFNs and TALENs consist of endonucleases fused to a DNA-binding domain, while the CRISPR/Cas9 system uses guide RNAs to target the bacterial Cas9 endonuclease to the desired genomic location. The double-strand breaks made by these endonucleases are repaired in the cells either by non-homologous end joining, resulting in the introduction of insertions/deletions, or, if a repair template is provided, by homology directed repair. The ZFNs, TALENs and CRISPR/Cas9 systems take advantage of these repair mechanisms for targeted genome modification and have been successfully used to
The CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) and Cas (CRISPR-associated) genes are widely spread in bacteria and archaea, representing an intracellular defence system against invading viruses and plasmids. In the system, fragments from foreign DNA are captured and integrated into the host genome at the CRISPR locus. The locus is transcribed and the resulting RNAs are processed by Cas6 into small crRNAs (CRISPR RNAs) that guide a variety of effector complexes to degrade the invading genetic elements. Many bacteria and archaea have one major type of effector complex. However, Sulfolobus solfataricus strain P2 has six CRISPR loci with two families of repeats, four cas6 genes and three different types of effector complex. These features make S. solfataricus an important model for studying CRISPR-Cas systems. In the present article, we review our current understanding of crRNA biogenesis and its effector complexes, subtype I-A and subtype III-B, in S. solfataricus. We also ...
Feng Zhang, a pioneer of the revolutionary CRISPR gene editing technology, TAL effectors, and optogenetics, has just been announced as the recipient of the 2017 $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize, the largest cash prize for invention in the United States. Zhang is a core member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, an investigator at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research, James and Patricia Poitras Professor in Neuroscience at MIT, and associate professor in the departments of Brain and Cognitive Sciences and Biological Engineering at MIT.. Zhang and his team were first to develop and demonstrate successful methods for using an engineered CRISPR-Cas9 system to edit genomes in living mouse and human cells and have turned CRISPR technology into a practical and shareable collection of tools for robust gene editing and epigenomic manipulation. CRISPR, or Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, has been harnessed by Zhang and his team as a groundbreaking gene-editing tool that is ...
In the adult brain, programmed death of neural stem cells is considered to be critical for tissue homeostasis and cognitive function and is dysregulated in neurodegeneration. Previously, we have reported that adult rat hippocampal neural (HCN) stem cells undergo autophagic cell death (ACD) following insulin withdrawal. Because the apoptotic capability of the HCN cells was intact, our findings suggested activation of unique molecular mechanisms linking insulin withdrawal to ACD rather than apoptosis. Here, we report that phosphorylation of autophagy-associated protein p62 by AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) drives ACD and mitophagy in HCN cells. Pharmacological inhibition of AMPK or genetic ablation of the AMPK alpha 2 subunit by clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/Cas9 genome editing suppressed ACD, whereas AMPK activation promoted ACD in insulin-deprived HCN cells. We found that following insulin withdrawal AMPK phosphorylated p62 at a novel site, ...
Japanese scientists have used the revolutionary CRISPR, or CRISPR/Cas9, genome-editing tool to change flower colour in an ornamental plant, the first time the technique has been used for such a purpose.. Researchers from the University of Tsukuba, the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO) and Yokohama City University, Japan, altered the flower colour of Japanese morning glory (Ipomoea nil or Pharbitis nil), from violet to white, by disrupting a single gene. Japanese morning glory, or Asagao, was chosen as it is one of two traditional horticultural model plants in the National BioResource Project in Japan (NBRP).. The research team targeted a single gene, dihydroflavonol-4-reductase-B (DFR-B), encoding an anthocyanin biosynthesis enzyme, that is responsible for the colour of the plants stems, leaves and flowers. Two other, very closely related genes (DFR-A and DRF-C) sit side-by-side, next to DFR-B.. The CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats)/Cas9 ...

Our knowledge of natural genetic variation is increasing at an extremely rapid pace, affording an opportunity to come to a much richer understanding of how effects of specific genes are dependent on the genetic background. To achieve a systematic understanding of such GxG interactions, it is desirable to develop genome editing tools that can be rapidly deployed across many different genetic varieties. We present an efficient CRISPR/Cas9 toolbox of super module (SM) vectors. These vectors are based on a previously described fluorescence protein marker expressed in seeds allowing identification of transgene-free mutants. We have used this vector series to delete genomic regions ranging from 1.7 to 13 kb in different natural accessions of the wild plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Based on results from 53 pairs of sgRNAs targeting individual nucleotide binding site leucine-rich repeat (NLR) genes, we provide a comprehensive overview of obtaining heritable deletions. The SM series of CRISPR/Cas9 vectors enables
