Repetitive nucleic acid sequences that are principal components of the archaeal and bacterial CRISPR-CAS SYSTEMS, which function as adaptive antiviral defense systems.
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.
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.

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.
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.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- CRISPR-Cas systems are widely heralded as a new generation of genetic tools. But development of these tools requires researchers to identify the protospacer-adjacent motifs (PAMs) that unlock each systems functionality. A new set of techniques expedites PAM identification - and early testing finds that many CRISPR-Cas systems actually have multiple PAMs of varying strength. CRISPR-Cas systems protect bacteria from invaders such as viruses. They do this by creating small strands of RNA that match DNA sequences specific to a given invader. When those CRISPR RNAs find a match, they unleash proteins that chop up the invaders DNA, preventing it from replicating. However, the first step in the process isnt comparing the RNA to target DNA. The first step involves PAM recognition and binding ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Incomplete prophage tolerance by type III-A CRISPR-Cas systems reduces the fitness of lysogenic hosts. AU - Goldberg, Gregory W.. AU - McMillan, Elizabeth A.. AU - Varble, Andrew. AU - Modell, Joshua W.. AU - Samai, Poulami. AU - Jiang, Wenyan. AU - Marraffini, Luciano A.. PY - 2018/12/1. Y1 - 2018/12/1. N2 - CRISPR-Cas systems offer an immune mechanism through which prokaryotic hosts can acquire heritable resistance to genetic parasites, including temperate phages. Co-transcriptional DNA and RNA targeting by type III-A CRISPR-Cas systems restricts temperate phage lytic infections while allowing lysogenic infections to be tolerated under conditions where the prophage targets are transcriptionally repressed. However, long-term consequences of this phenomenon have not been explored. Here we show that maintenance of conditionally tolerant type III-A systems can produce fitness costs within populations of Staphylococcus aureus lysogens. The fitness costs depend on the activity of ...
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, ...
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
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
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) and CRISPR-associated (Cas) genes are present in many bacterial and archaeal genomes. Since the discovery of the typical CRISPR loci in the 1980s, well before their physiological role was revealed, their variable sequences have been used as a complementary typing tool in diagnostic, epidemiologic, and evolutionary analyses of prokaryotic strains. The discovery that CRISPR spacers are often identical to sequence fragments of mobile genetic elements was a major breakthrough that eventually led to the elucidation of CRISPR-Cas as an adaptive immunity system. Key elements of this unique prokaryotic defense system are small CRISPR RNAs that guide nucleases to complementary target nucleic acids of invading viruses and plasmids, generally followed by the degradation of the invader. In addition, several recent studies have pointed at direct links of CRISPR-Cas to regulation of a range of stress-related phenomena. An interesting example ...
CRISPR-Cas systems endow bacterial and archaeal species with adaptive immunity mechanisms to fend off invading phages and foreign genetic elements. CRISPR-Cas9 has been harnessed to confer virus interference against DNA viruses in eukaryotes, including plants. In addition, CRISPR-Cas13 systems have been used to target RNA viruses and the transcriptome in mammalian and plant cells. Recently, CRISPR-Cas13a has been shown to confer modest interference against RNA viruses. Here, we characterized a set of different Cas13 variants to identify those with the most efficient, robust, and specific interference activities against RNA viruses in planta using Nicotiana benthamiana. Our data show that LwaCas13a, PspCas13b, and CasRx variants mediate high interference activities against RNA viruses in transient assays. Moreover, CasRx mediated robust interference in both transient and stable overexpression assays when compared to the other variants tested. CasRx targets either one virus alone or two RNA viruses

As CRISPR-Cas9 system is emerging as a versatile tool in genome editing it is necessary to know the complete landscape of this system. The authors in this review tried to give a perspective of CRISPR-Cas9 along with RNAi. To explain the whole phenomenon they chose several comparable aspects between CRISPR-Cas9 and RNAi with respect to efficiency, off target effects, genome screening tools, in vivo studies and molecular consequences. As off targets are a major problem in genome editing technologies the authors covered certain developments such as introducing mutations in sgRNAs, delivery of multiple sgRNAs for a single target etc. In addition to it various screening strategies, which are used in RNAi have also been explained.. CRISPR-Cas9 system does not interfere with the endogenous machinery of cell as it is edited at the level of DNA within the nucleus; sometimes it is a major problem with siRNAs or shRNAs, which may lead to cell death (Doudna et al, 2014).. ...
A Cornell researcher, who is a leader in developing a new type of gene editing CRISPR system, and colleagues have used the new method for the first time in human cells - a major advance in the field.. The new system, called CRISPR-Cas3, can efficiently erase long stretches of DNA from a targeted site in the human genome, a capability not easily attainable in more traditional CRISPR-Cas9 systems. Though robust applications may be well in the future, the new system has the potential to seek out and erase such ectopic viruses as herpes simplex, Epstein-Barr, and hepatitis B, each of which is a major threat to public health.. My lab spent the past ten years figuring out how CRISPR-Cas3 works. I am thrilled that my colleagues and I finally demonstrated its genome editing activity in human cells, said Ailong Ke, professor of molecular biology and genetics and a corresponding author of a paper published April 8 in the journal Molecular Cell. Our tools can be made to target these viruses very ...
The clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats-CRISPR-associated protein 9 (CRISPR-Cas9) system is considered as a technological revolution in targeted mutagenesis. However, a large amount of time and cost is needed to screen for the CRISPR-Cas9 induced mutants from a usual large number of initial samples. Thus, Chun Wang and Kejian Wang from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences presented a cost-effective and sensitive screening technique for identifying mutants based on conventional polymerase chain reaction (PCR). They called this new technique as annealing at critical temperature PCR (ACT-PCR). ACT-PCR needs only one PCR step and then execution of agarose gel electrophoresis. Because of its simplicity, ACT-PCR is suitable for rapid, large-scale screening of CRISPR-Cas9-induced mutants. Read more description about ACT-PCR in Plant Genome Editing with CRISPR Systems.. ...

Much effort is underway to build and upgrade databases and tools related to occurrence, diversity, and characterization of CRISPR-Cas systems. As microbial communities and their genome complements are unearthed, much emphasis has been placed on details of individual strains and model systems within the CRISPR-Cas classification, and that collection of information as a whole affords the opportunity to analyze CRISPR-Cas systems from a quantitative perspective to gain insight into distribution of CRISPR array sizes across the different classes, types and subtypes. CRISPR diversity, nomenclature, occurrence, and biological functions have generated a plethora of data that created a need to understand the size and distribution of these various systems to appreciate their features and complexity. By utilizing a statistical framework and visual analytic techniques, we have been able to test several hypotheses about CRISPR loci in bacterial class I systems. Quantitatively, though CRISPR loci can expand to
Using structural knowledge of Cas9, scientists have overcome a key CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing hurdle and developed a highly specific genome-editing tool.. Researchers at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT have engineered changes to the revolutionary CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing system that significantly cut down on off-target editing errors. The refined technique addresses one of the major technical issues in the use of genome editing.. The CRISPR-Cas9 system works by making a precisely targeted modification in a cells DNA. The protein Cas9 alters the DNA at a location that is specified by a short RNA whose sequence matches that of the target site. While Cas9 is known to be highly efficient at cutting its target site, a major drawback of the system has been that, once inside a cell, it can bind to and cut additional sites that are not targeted. This has the potential to produce undesired edits that can alter gene expression or knock a ...
These data demonstrate the successful adaptation of the CRISPR-Cas prokaryotic immune system as an intracellular eukaryotic antiviral defense. Although other CRISPR-Cas systems can target RNA in archaea (18⇓-20) and bacteria (21), and recently Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 (SpCas9) has been shown to cleave RNAs in vitro (22), this work demonstrates the reprogramming of a Cas protein (FnCas9) to target RNA within a eukaryotic cell. Intriguingly, we find that orthologous Cas9 proteins from diverse type II CRISPR-Cas families, including S. pyogenes, Streptococcus thermophilus, and Neisseria meningitidis, are also capable of inhibiting HCV during cellular infection (Figs. S7 and S8). This suggests a broader capability of diverse Cas9 proteins to target and associate with RNAs of interest. Our results further demonstrate that FnCas9 inhibition of HCV is PAM-independent, unlike the in vitro RNA-targeting ability of SpCas9, which requires exogenous PAM-encoding oligomers (22). Thus, this method of RNA ...
Here, we report that genome editing by CRISPR-Cas9 induces a p53-mediated DNA damage response and cell cycle arrest in immortalized human retinal pigment epithelial cells, leading to a selection against cells with a functional p53 pathway. Inhibition of p53 prevents the damage response and increases the rate of homologous recombination from a donor template. These results suggest that p53 inhibition may improve the efficiency of genome editing of untransformed cells and that p53 function should be monitored when developing cell-based therapies utilizing CRISPR-Cas9. CRISPR-Cas9-induced DNA damage triggers p53 to limit the efficiency of gene editing in immortalized human retinal pigment epithelial cells.
The recent advent of the CRISPR-Cas9 system has significantly increased the capacity for genome editing and transcriptional modulation in a selection of organisms (13, 14, 24, 26, 28, 72). B. subtilis shows considerable promise as an established industrial workhorse (73, 74), such that a CRISPR-Cas9 tool kit is essential to its progression toward full industrial utility. Traditional methods employed in B. subtilis, such as autoevicting counterselectable markers and site-specific recombination, suffer from low editing efficiency (47, 48) and/or limited capacity for multiplexing. Furthermore, existing technologies for transcriptional metering require extensive characterization or sequence modification prior to deployment, making their adoption cumbersome and time-consuming (3, 31-34). Here we propose an effective and scalable CRISPR-Cas9 tool kit for comprehensive engineering of B. subtilis, including targeted single-gene KO and multiple-gene KI, continuous genome editing, multiplexing, and ...
CRISPR-Cas systems can be expressed in multiple ways, with different capabilities regarding tissue-specific expression, efficiency, and expression levels. Thus far, three expression strategies have been demonstrated in plants: mixed dual promoter systems, dual Pol II promoter systems, and single transcript unit (STU) systems. We explored a fourth strategy to express CRISPR-Cas9 in the model and crop plant, rice, where a bidirectional promoter (BiP) is used to express Cas9 and single guide RNA (sgRNA) in opposite directions. We first tested an engineered BiP system based on double-mini 35S promoter and an Arabidopsis enhancer, which resulted in 20.7% and 52.9% genome editing efficiencies at two target sites in T0 stable transgenic rice plants. We further improved the BiP system drastically by using a rice endogenous BiP, OsBiP1. The endogenous BiP expression system had higher expression strength and led to 75.9-93.3% genome editing efficiencies in rice T0 generation, when the sgRNAs were processed by

Researchers at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin-Buch and the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) have engineered a more efficient CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing tool. The authors of the Nature Biotechnology article inhibited key molecules of the Non-Homologous End Joining (NHEJ) repair pathway, thus boosting the more precise Homology Directed Repair (HDR) pathway. This innovation increased the efficiency of the CRISPR-Cas9 technology more than eightfold.. Genome editing tools have been sought after for many years in biomedical research. Several technologies have been developed in the past, such as RNA interference (RNAi) or transcription-activator like effector nucleases (TALENs). These technologies, although welcome, had several drawbacks: depending on the case, they were expensive, slow, imprecise or transiently effective. The discovery of the function of Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) and associated Cas genes -a bacterial defense system ...

Bacteria face a constant threat of being infected and killed by viruses, called bacteriophages, that are specially equipped to destroy them. In the Bondy-Denomy lab we are interested in the ways in which bacteria defend themselves from attack. We use a combination of genetic, molecular and biochemical approaches to characterize the arms race between bacteria and phages, with a goal to better understand microbial ecosystems. Furthermore, we hope to make discoveries that will be influential in combatting infectious disease and providing novel biotechnologies.. The CRISPR-Cas system was functionally characterized just ten years ago as a bacterial immune system that targets phages. Since then, there has been an explosion of interest in this system for its widespread presence in the microbial world as well as its facile programmability. This has formed the basis of a revolutionary gene editing technique, CRISPR-Cas9. In the lab, we are focused on studying CRISPR-Cas systems in their natural settings, ...
Are you genome editing with CRISPR-Cas9? Consider the Alt-R CRISPR-Cas9 kit-a customizable, end-to-end Cas9-CRISPR system offering best in class performance.
Functional genomic screening is largely used for identifying the essential genes for a specific cellular process. RNA interference (RNAi) [51] has been dominantly applied for genome-wide screening; however, the off-target effects of RNAi has limited its applications [52-54]. In addition, RNAi could not be used for silencing RNAs located in nucleus. The CRISPR-Cas9 system has been successfully used in various genome-scale loss of function screening [55-58]. Using a genome-scale lentiviral sgRNA library, all expected genes of the DNA mismatch repair pathway have been identified in screening for resistance to the nucleotide analog 6-thioguanine, and numerous genes corresponding to fundamental processes have been obtained with a negative selection screening for essential genes [55]. A genome-scale CRISPR-Cas9 knockout (GeCKO) library has been developed and successfully used for screening genes essential for cell viability in cancer and pluripotent stem cells and for genes associated with the ...
Natural variations in a genome can drastically alter the CRISPR-Cas9 off-target landscape by creating or removing sites. Despite the resulting potential side-effects from such unaccounted for sites, current off-target detection pipelines are not equipped to include variant information. To address this, we developed VARiant-aware detection and SCoring of Off-Targets (VARSCOT). VARSCOT identifies only 0.6% of off-targets to be common between 4 individual genomes and the reference, with an average of 82% of off-targets unique to an individual. VARSCOT is the most sensitive detection method for off-targets, finding 40 to 70% more experimentally verified off-targets compared to other popular software tools and its machine learning model allows for CRISPR-Cas9 concentration aware off-target activity scoring. VARSCOT allows researchers to take genomic variation into account when designing individual or population-wide targeting strategies. VARSCOT is available from https://github.com

GENETIC and molecular techniques to manipulate the genomes of model organisms are invaluable tools for understanding gene function. In Drosophila, chemical and insertional mutagenesis are powerful and widely utilized methods for disrupting gene function (St Johnston 2002; Venken and Bellen 2005). Imprecise excision of a transposable element inserted near a gene of interest can result in deletion of all or part of the locus. More recently, techniques that stimulate homologous recombination (HR) using an exogenous template have made precisely targeted genome modifications possible (Gloor et al. 1991; Banga and Boyd 1992; Nassif et al. 1994; Rong and Golic 2000; Gong and Golic 2003; Huang et al. 2009). The most widely used methods rely on double-strand breaks (DSBs) in the donor template to trigger HR, but these can be time consuming and labor intensive (Gao et al. 2008; Huang et al. 2009). Zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs) and transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) have been ...

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 ...

Some of our experiments from last year suggested that one could mismatch a few nucleotides at one end of the gRNA complementarity region without affecting the targeting activity, Joung explains. That led us to wonder whether removing these nucleotides could make the system more sensitive to mismatches in the remaining sequence. Based on a natural system a species of bacteria uses against other pathogens, the CRISPR-Cas RGNs most widely used by researchers includes a 20-nucleotide targeting region within the gRNA. To test their theory, the MGH team constructed RGNs with progressively shorter gRNAs and found that, while gRNAs with targeting segments of 17 or 18 nucleotides were as or more efficient than full-length gRNAs in reaching their targets, those with 15- or 16-nucleotide targeting segments had reduced or no targeting activity. Subsequent experiments found that 17-nucleotide truncated RGNs efficiently induced the desired mutations in human cells with greatly reduced or undetectable ...

The Emmanuelle Charpentier Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology focuses on fundamental mechanisms of regulation in pathogens (CRISPR-Cas9)
We present a CRISPR-Cas based technique for deleting genes from the T7 bacteriophage genome. A DNA fragment encoding homologous arms to the target gene to be deleted is first cloned into a plasmid. The T7 phage is then propagated in Escherichia coli harboring this plasmid. During this propagation, some phage genomes undergo homologous recombination with the plasmid, thus deleting the targeted gene. To select for these genomes, the CRISPR-Cas system is used to cleave non-edited genomes, enabling isolation of the desired recombinant phages. This protocol allows seamless deletion of desired genes in a T7 phage, and can be expanded to other phages and other types of genetic manipulations as well.
In this specific article we describe how current events in neuro-scientific phage therapy might positively influence its future advancement. make use of against antibiotic-resistant bacterias. 3. CRISPR-Cas: From Phages to Eukaryotes Yet another important referral ought to be designed to the latest advancement of simplified options for high-efficiency gene-editing. This magnificent innovative technology is dependant on the CRISPR-Cas systems which bacteria created during their progression to be able to defend themselves against attacks by phages. It has once more clarified how interesting and essential the study of the extremely old romantic relationship between phages and bacterias can be, which it can result in unforeseen benefits and great leaps forwards for science and its own practical applications, including great claims for the avoidance or treatment of hereditary and complicated illnesses [10,11,12]. 4.

CRISPR-Cas encodes an adaptive immune system that defends prokaryotes against infectious viruses and plasmids. Immunity is mediated by Cas nucleases, which use small RNA guides (the crRNAs) to specify a cleavage site within the genome of invading nucleic acids. In type II CRISPR-Cas systems, the DNA-cleaving activity is performed by a single enzyme Cas9 guided by an RNA duplex. Using synthetic single RNA guides, Cas9 can be reprogrammed to create specific double-stranded DNA breaks in the genomes of a variety of organisms, ranging from human cells to bacteria, and thus constitutes a powerful tool for genetic engineering. Here we describe recent advancements in our understanding of type II CRISPR-Cas immunity and how these studies led to revolutionary genome editing applications.. ...
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 ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Using the endogenous CRISPR-Cas system of Heliobacterium modesticaldum to delete the photochemical reaction center core subunit gene. AU - Baker, Patricia L.. AU - Orf, Gregory S.. AU - Kevershan, Kimberly. AU - Pyne, Michael E.. AU - Bicer, Taner. AU - Redding, Kevin E.. PY - 2019/12/1. Y1 - 2019/12/1. N2 - In Heliobacterium modesticaldum, as in many Firmicutes, deleting genes by homologous recombination using standard techniques has been extremely difficult. The cells tend to integrate the introduced plasmid into the chromosome by a single recombination event rather than perform the double recombination required to replace the targeted locus. Transformation with a vector containing only a homologous recombination template for replacement of the photochemical reaction center gene pshA produced colonies with multiple genotypes, rather than a clean gene replacement. To address this issue, we required an additional means of selection to force a clean gene replacement. In this ...
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) and CRISPR-associated genes (cas) are widely distributed among bacteria. These systems provide adaptive immunity against mobile genetic elements specified by the spacer sequences stored within the CRISPR. The CRISPR-Cas system has been identified using Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) against other sequenced and annotated genomes and confirmed via CRISPRfinder program. Using Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCR) and Sanger DNA sequencing, we discovered CRISPRs in additional bacterial isolates of the same species of Bordetella. Transcriptional activity and processing of the CRISPR have been assessed via RT-PCR. Here we describe a novel Type II-C CRISPR and its associated genes-cas1, cas2, and cas9-in several isolates of a newly discovered Bordetella species. The CRISPR-cas locus, which is absent in all other Bordetella species, has a significantly lower GC-content than the genome-wide average, suggesting acquisition of this locus via
The conserved Aca protein in Pseudomonas phage acts on the activity of acr (anti-CRISPR)-promoter in the anti-CRISPR-Cas system in Pseudomonas phage. The CRISPR-Cas system is an acquired immune system in bacteria and archaea that helps them resist the invasion of foreign genetic material, such as bacteriophage, by integrating the foreign DNA sequence into its own genome. Phages express anti-CRISPR (Acr) proteins to inhibit the CRISPR-Cas system, preventing their own genomes from being destroyed. acr genes encode proteins that bind to acr-promoter and regulate adjacent anti-CRISPR-associated (aca) genes. Through binding to acr-promoter, Aca proteins could act as crucial inhibitors of the transcription of anti-CRISPR genes. After the DNA of phage is injected into host cells, immediate high-level transcription of acr gene helps phage to survive under the pressure of the CRISPR-Cas system in host cells, but such high transcription level of acr gene induces dysregulation of other critical genes, ...

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).. ...

The CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat)-Cas (CRISPR associated) system is a naturally occuring, adaptative microbial immune system for defense against invading phages and other mobile genetic elements. Type II CRISPR-Cas systems use an RNA-guided DNA endonuclease, Cas9, to generate double strand breaks in invasive DNA during an adaptative bacterial immune response. Cas9 proteins are abundant across the bacterial kingdom, but vary widely in both sequence and size. All known Cas9 enzymes contain an HNH domain that cleaves the DNA strand complementary to the guide RNA sequence (target strand), and a RuvC nuclease domain required for cleaving the noncomplementary strand (non-target strand), yielding double strand DNA breaks (DSBs) [1,2]. The Cas9-type HNH nuclease domain contains a two-stranded antiparallel β sheet flanked by two α-helices on each side (see ,PDB:4CMP,) [1,2]. The profile we developed covers the entire Cas9-type HNH domain. Last update: March 2015 / ...
UNLABELLED: Bacterial genomes encode numerous homologs of Cas9, the effector protein of the type II CRISPR-Cas systems. The homology region includes the arginine-rich helix and the HNH nuclease domain that is inserted into the RuvC-like nuclease domain. These genes, however, are not linked to cas genes or CRISPR. Here, we show that Cas9 homologs represent a distinct group of nonautonomous transposons, which we denote ISC (insertion sequences Cas9-like). We identify many diverse families of full-length ISC transposons and demonstrate that their terminal sequences (particularly 3 termini) are similar to those of IS605 superfamily transposons that are mobilized by the Y1 tyrosine transposase encoded by the TnpA gene and often also encode the TnpB protein containing the RuvC-like endonuclease domain ...
The discovery of CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) and Cas9 (CRISPR associated system or CRISPR associated protein 9 nuclease) found in bacteria to work as a defense mechanism against foreign DNA, has proven to be an invaluable tool to target and modify a genetic sequence in gene editing and genome engineering applications. The system, known as CRISPR/Cas9, allows for sequence-specific cleavage of a targeted genomic locus by delivering the RNA-guided nuclease (Cas9) and appropriate guide RNAs (gRNA) into a cell. In addition, Protospacer Adjacent Motif (PAM) sequence immediately following the specificity sequence is necessary for successful binding of the Cas9 nuclease ...
Using a highly efficient AAV delivery platform together with potent and specific guide RNAs for CRISPR-Cas9, we and others have demonstrated efficient in vivo genome editing in mouse models (25). Following cleavage by endonuclease, HDR is generally a less efficient pathway compared to NHEJ, which creates gene-disabling indels. AAV vector has exhibited advantages as an efficient vehicle to deliver donor DNA both in vitro and in vivo. We previously demonstrated successful correction of a G-to-A mutation in 10% of OTC alleles in the liver of newborn OTC spfash mice by a CRISPR-Cas9-mediated HDR approach (25). However, this approach cannot benefit all OTC-deficient patients because disease-causing mutations and large deletions are found scattered at approximately 320 different positions throughout the OTC gene (27). The HDR-mediated gene-targeting approach described in the current study could be broadly applied to all patients carrying mutations in the same causal gene, similar to gene replacement ...
The development of CRISPR-Cas technology is revolutionizing biology. Based on machinery bacteria use to target foreign nucleic acids, these powerful techniques allow investigators to edit nucleic acids and modulate gene expression more rapidly and accurately than ever before.Featuring contributions from leading figures in the CRISPR-Cas field, this laboratory manual presents a state-of-the-art guide to the technology.
In light of this decision, the Doudna/Charpentier patent application will be returned to the Patent Examiner, who previously determined it to be allowable, thus moving the Doudna/Charpentier groups application closer to issuance as a patent covering the use of CRISPR-Cas9 in all types of cells and organisms, including bacteria, plants, animals and humans.. The team led by UCs Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier, now at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology, invented the CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology that has been rightfully hailed as the scientific breakthrough of the century, said UC President Janet Napolitano. We are pleased that todays ruling affirms the spectacular accomplishments of these two scientists and their research teams and highlights the incomparable value of basic research at our public research universities and scientific institutions.. The PTAB decision does, however, leave in place patents previously issued to the Broad Institute for use of ...

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 ...

THE CRISPR-Cas9 system is a bacterial adaptive immune system that has been harnessed as a powerful genome editing tool (Doudna and Charpentier 2014). Cas9 is a nuclease that functions with two small RNAs: CRISPR RNA (crRNA), which guides Cas9 to complementary target sequences, and trans-activating crRNA (tracrRNA), which binds to the crRNA and to Cas9 to form the ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complex (Deltcheva et al. 2011). For use in genome editing, the crRNA and tracrRNA are often combined into a single chimeric guide RNA (sgRNA) (Jinek et al. 2012). Expression of Cas9 and sgRNA in cells leads to cleavage of complementary genomic sequences. The double-strand breaks are repaired by endogenous cellular pathways, including end-joining mechanisms [e.g., nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ) and theta-mediated end joining (TMEJ)] and homology-dependent repair (HDR) mechanisms (van Schendel et al. 2015). End joining typically introduces random insertions/deletions at the DNA break site, which can disrupt gene ...
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 ...
Gene correction is a valuable strategy for treating inherited retinal degenerative diseases, a major cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. Single gene defects cause the majority of these retinal dystrophies. Gene augmentation holds great promise if delivered early in the course of the disease, however, many patients carry mutations in genes too large to be packaged into adeno-associated viral vectors and some, when overexpressed via heterologous promoters, induce retinal toxicity. In addition to the aforementioned challenges, some patients have sustained significant photoreceptor cell loss at the time of diagnosis, rendering gene replacement therapy insufficient to treat the disease. These patients will require cell replacement to restore useful vision. Fortunately, the advent of induced pluripotent stem cell and CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technologies affords researchers and clinicians a powerful means by which to develop strategies to treat patients with inherited retinal dystrophies. In ...
Samuel Hasson (SH): With CRISPR, we can really get into the endogenous realm in R&D. We can endogenously tag a protein instead of having to overexpress it, and that can make a huge difference with respect to the results of our experiments. As John noted, we remove a layer of artifacts, and so we can make cleaner observations of phenotypic changes, and the results are clearer.. How are you using CRISPR-Cas9 in your own work?. JD: I love technology development. My job is to work with experts in infectious diseases, cancer biology, neurobiology and other areas who want to solve specific biological problems. I apply the latest genome perturbation tools, such as CRISPR, to their model system and, working together, we learn which genes are involved in their particular disease processes. For example, Ive collaborated with researchers here at the Broad on various components of the immune system to learn about factors involved in influenza and norovirus infection. Weve also used CRISPR technology in ...
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 ...
TY - GEN. T1 - Plasmids, CRISPR-Cas and Anti-CRIPSRs. T2 - Uncovering the secret lives of mobile genetic elements. AU - Pinilla Redondo, Rafael. PY - 2020. Y1 - 2020. N2 - Horizontal gene transfer plays a fundamental role in bacterial adaptation to changing environments. The vehicles that facilitate genetic exchange among cells are known as mobile genetic elements-semi-independent genetic entities that require a host cell to propagate (e.g. plasmids and bacteriophages). Although mobile genetic elements can be advantageous to their cell hosts by carrying beneficial traits and acting as valuable sources of evolutionary innovation, their replicative self-interests inherently imply a fitness cost. The competing yet interdependent relationships between mobile genetic elements and their hosts result in complex co-evolutionary dynamics which, among other things, have led to the evolution of a diverse panel of defense and anti-defense mechanisms.Mobile genetic elements have been at the core of ...
We hypothesized that simultaneous DNA cleavages by Cas9 at multiple PERV sites in the FFF3 genome trigger DNA damage-induced senescence or apoptosis; hence, we could not obtain the highly modified FFF3 clones. Through screening of different anti-apoptotic strategies (figs. S6 and S7), we observed that, during genetic modification, the application of a cocktail containing p53 inhibitor, pifithrin alpha (PFTα), and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) significantly increased the average targeting efficiency of the resulting FFF3 populations {fig. S6A [ANOVA (analysis of variance), P = 0.00002] and fig. S6B}. Using this optimized cocktail, we were able to grow 100% PERV-inactivated FFF3 cells (PERV-inactivated FFF3) from the population treated with CRISPR-Cas9 (Fig. 2, C and D).. Having confirmed that we genetically mutated PERV pol in the genome, we performed RNA sequencing (fig. S8) on PERV-inactivated FFF3 clones and confirmed that all pol transcripts had been mutated. Furthermore, we examined ...
The CRISPR-Cas9 genetic scissors is called the sharpest tool in genetic engineering and has revolutionised molecular biological and cell biological research. Emmanuelle Charpentier made the discovery at Umeå University in 2012 and received the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for it, together with Jennifer A. Doudna from the University of California, Berkeley, USA. On this page, we have gathered material related to genetic scissors. ...
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-independent, T cell-mediated targeting of cancer cells would allow immune destruction of malignancies in all individuals. Here, we use genome-wide CRISPR-Cas9 screening to establish that a T cell receptor (TCR) recognized and killed most human cancer types via the monomorphic MHC class I-related protein, MR1, while remaining inert to noncancerous cells. Unlike mucosal-associated invariant T cells, recognition of target cells by the TCR was independent of bacterial loading. Furthermore, concentration-dependent addition of vitamin B-related metabolite ligands of MR1 reduced TCR recognition of cancer cells, suggesting that recognition occurred via sensing of the cancer metabolome. An MR1-restricted T cell clone mediated in vivo regression of leukemia and conferred enhanced survival of NSG mice. TCR transfer to T cells of patients enabled killing of autologous and nonautologous melanoma. These findings offer opportunities for HLA-independent, pan-cancer, pan-population ...
CRISPR-Cas RNA-guided nucleases are derived from an adaptive immune system that evolved in bacteria to defend against invading plasmids and viruses. Decades of work investigating CRISPR systems in various microbial species has elucidated a mechanism by which short sequences of invading nucleic acids are incorporated into CRISPR loci. They are then transcribed and processed into CRISPR RNAs (crRNAs) which, together with a trans-activating crRNAs (tracrRNAs), complex with CRISPR-associated (Cas) proteins to dictate specificity of DNA cleavage by Cas nucleases through Watson-Crick base pairing between nucleic acids. Building off of two studies showing that the three components required for the type II CRISPR nuclease system are the Cas9 protein, the mature crRNA and the tracrRNA, Doudna, Charpentier and colleagues showed through in vitro DNA cleavage experiments that this system could be reduced to two components by fusion of the crRNA and tracrRNA into a single guide RNA (gRNA). Furthermore, they ...
An innovative workflow to guide the insertion of 10-12 nucleotides into a gene of interest. Genome engineering using CRISPR-Cas9 requires expression of the Cas9 nuclease with the crRNA and tracrRNA. This can be achieved by co-transfection of a plasmid expressing Cas9 and crRNA:tracrRNA, or by creation of a cell line in which the Cas9 cassette is delivered using lentiviral particles and stably integrated and expressed prior to transfection with crRNA:tracrRNA. The Dharmacon Edit-R™ CRISPR-Cas9 product line represents the most comprehensive portfolio of tools for gene editing available, but tools are useless without an understanding how to use them. The Edit-R CRISPR-Cas9 genome engineering platform employing chemically synthesized RNAs is a relatively quick and easy method to test multiple guide sequences for optimizing % indel formation through non homologous end joining (NHEJ) and achieving functional gene knockouts.. One topic that comes up frequently when speaking with researchers and ...

Ellison, Ph.D., lead patent strategist on CRISPR-Cas9 matters for UC and a Director at Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox. We anticipate further momentum and expansion of the portfolio as each aspect of this pioneering technology is formally recognized and receives the patent ...
Although the two primary forces driving the overall genome evolution of S. thermophilus consist of genome reduction by iterative gene losses in combination with occasional acquisition of beneficial genes through horizontal gene transfer for adaptation to a rich environment (primarily milk) [6,53,58,59], we show in the present article that CRISPR plays a major role in genome evolution following exposure to phages. Indeed, regressive genome evolution by extensive gene loss has been a key driving force shaping the adaptation of S. thermophilus to the rich milk environment, illustrated by the loss of virulence genes widely distributed in most streptococci. Overall, the DGCC7710 genome shares a high degree of synteny with other S. thermophilus genomes, with a few unique genomic islands and hypervariable loci that include the eps operon, the gp operon and CRISPR-Cas systems. Focusing on genome interplay within host-virus dynamics, we propose that the impact of the virus on host genome evolution is ...
By Kevin Holden, PhD, Head of Synthetic Biology at Synthego. This is the fourth part in the CRISPR 101 series by Synthego, providing a crash course on CRISPR-Cas9 and its applications in a wide range of life science disciplines.. The CRISPR revolution helped to trigger some fast-paced developments in biomedical research in the past year. Some of these included the first report of editing disease causing gene mutations in a human embryo and the development of transgenic pigs that are free of integrated viral genes, which could make them useful for future organ transplants in humans (1, 2).. However, in the past year, weve also seen some incredible advances to the CRISPR technology itself. The development of new tools and applications for CRISPR-Cas9 will undoubtedly serve to enable even greater advances in the field of biomedical research in the years to come. Some of the latest advancements in CRISPR technology are elaborated below.. Editing a single nucleotide using CRISPR One of the important ...

Probing gene function in the mammalian brain can be greatly assisted with methods to manipulate the genome of neurons in vivo. The clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-associated endonuclease (Cas)9 from Streptococcus pyogenes (SpCas9) can be used to edit single or multiple genes in replicating eukaryotic cells, resulting in frame-shifting insertion/deletion (indel) mutations and subsequent protein depletion. Here, we delivered SpCas9 and guide RNAs using adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors to target single (Mecp2) as well as multiple genes (Dnmt1, Dnmt3a and Dnmt3b) in the adult mouse brain in vivo. We characterized the effects of genome modifications in postmitotic neurons using biochemical, genetic, electrophysiological and behavioral readouts. Our results demonstrate that AAV-mediated SpCas9 genome editing can enable reverse genetic studies of gene function in the brain ...
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.,
Broad-spectrum antiviral drugs targeting host processes could potentially treat a wide range of viruses while reducing the likelihood of emergent resistance. Despite great promise as therapeutics, such drugs remain largely elusive. Here we used parallel genome-wide high-coverage short hairpin RNA (shRNA) and clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-Cas9 screens to identify the cellular target and mechanism of action of GSK983, a potent broad-spectrum antiviral with unexplained cytotoxicity. We found that GSK983 blocked cell proliferation and dengue virus replication by inhibiting the pyrimidine biosynthesis enzyme dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH). Guided by mechanistic insights from both genomic screens, we found that exogenous deoxycytidine markedly reduced GSK983 cytotoxicity but not antiviral activity, providing an attractive new approach to improve the therapeutic window of DHODH inhibitors against RNA viruses. Our results highlight the distinct advantages and ...

The joint venture is being described by the companies as, the first long-term strategic partnership of its kind to make a substantial investment in the development of target delivery systems in an effort to bring systemic in vivo CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology applications to patients. In collaboration with CRISPR Therapeutics, Bayers new LifeScience Center (BLSC) division will work towards making its mandate a reality by partnering with innovative biotech companies to speed the development of medical breakthroughs.. The new Bayer LifeScience Center and the partnership with CRISPR Therapeutics are ...
CRISPR/Cas9 is becoming a most popular genome editing tool due to its simplicity, with guide RNA (gRNA or crRNA and tracrRNA) and cas9 recognizing specific target, cas9 will cut the DNA and make DSB (double strand break) just near the PAM site.

Magic scissors. The CRISPR scissor technique has transformed research in just five years. It has made it possible for hundreds of teams of scientists to snip out portions of chromosome that are mutated, or to see what happens when a certain gene isnt there. To understand CRISPR in simple terms, imagine a pair of scissors that have one side of a zipper attached to the tip of the blades. In order to cut a stretch of DNA at exactly the right spot, the zipper has to match up exactly with a stretch of DNA leading up to that spot - forming a tight bond that positions the scissors in just the right place. In CRISPR, the zipper is made of specially designed RNA, and the scissor effect comes from the harnessing the natural cutting action of a protein, or enzyme, called Cas9.

We are committed to optimizing current tools, and developing new ones. Many antibiotics, enzymes, drugs, and research tools like CRISPR-Cas9 are the repurposed natural products of microbes. To discover novel molecules, the IGI gathers genetic information from thousands of previously unknown bacteria and archaea. We also need more options for safely and reliably delivering editing tools to agricultural crops and the parts of the human body that are harmed by mutations. The IGI is developing cross-cutting new approaches for the delivery of genome editing tools. We are building upon foundational CRISPR-Cas technologies to create more precise and powerful tools for manipulating the genome.. ...
Co-lead author Benjamin Kleinstiver, PhD, of the MGH Molecular Pathology Unit and Michelle Prew, a research technician in Joungs lab, then tested all 15 possible variants in which any combination of one, two, three or four of those amino acid side-chains were altered and found that one three-substitution and one four-substitution variant appeared to show the greatest promise in discriminating against mismatched target sites while retaining full on-target activities in human cells. The researchers then more fully characterized the four-substitution variant, which they called SpCas9-HF1 (Sp for the Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria, which is the source of this widely used Cas9, and HF for high-fidelity). They found that this variant induced on-target effects comparable to those observed with the original unaltered SpCas9 when used with more than 85 percent of 37 different guide RNAs they tested. Using GUIDE-Seq, a highly sensitive system Joungs lab developed in 2014 to detect off-target ...

Researchers from the Broad Institute and MIT have created a new mouse model to simplify application of the CRISPR-Cas9 system for genome-editing experiments in living animals.. The researchers successfully used the new Cas9 mouse model to edit multiple genes in a variety of cell types, and to model lung adenocarcinoma, one of the most lethal human cancers. The mouse has already been made available to the scientific community and is being used by researchers at more than a dozen institutions.. A paper describing this new model and its initial applications in oncology appears today in the journal Cell.. In recent years, genetic studies have found thousands of links between genes and various diseases. But in order to prove that a specific gene is playing a role in the development of the disease, researchers need a way to perturb it - that is, turn the gene off, turn it on, or otherwise alter it - and study the effects.. A convenient genome-editing system. The CRISPR-Cas9 genome-editing system is ...
Plasmids are fundamental in all aspects of molecular biology due to their role as genetic scaffolds that are easy to modify and transfer between hosts. However, when plasmids carry functions that are only temporarily necessary, or a clean strain background is needed, limited options are currently available for efficient plasmid-curing of the most widely used cloning vectors in bacteria.. Existing methods for plasmid-curing are based on curing agents or incompatibility mediated plasmid displacement [13, 20]. However, these methods require sequential rounds of growth in stressful or non-selective conditions to promote the appearance of plasmid-free segregants. Such methods increase the chance of accumulating unwanted mutations and are time-consuming. Prior work has demonstrated that plasmids, traditionally considered incompatible can co-exist stably for multiple growth cycles [36], which only complicates incompatibility-based plasmid-curing further; especially for plasmids maintained at high ...
