The crisprVerse: a comprehensive Bioconductor ecosystem for the design of CRISPR guide RNAs across nucleases and technologies

Abstract The success of CRISPR-mediated gene perturbation studies is highly dependent on the quality of gRNAs, and several tools have been developed to enable optimal gRNA design. However, these tools are not all adaptable to the latest CRISPR modalities or nucleases, nor do they offer comprehensive annotation methods for advanced…

Frontiers | A Mutated Nme1Cas9 Is a Functional Alternative RNase to Both LwaCas13a and RfxCas13d in the Yeast S. cerevisiae

Introduction The clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)–CRISPR-associated (Cas) protein systems naturally exist in prokaryotes. They are RNA-mediated defense mechanisms to protect bacteria and archaea from invading nucleic acids (Barrangou et al., 2007). CRISPR–Cas systems are classified into two classes (1 and 2). Class 2 CRISPR–Cas require a single…

A Highly Sensitive and Specific Detection Method for Mycobacterium tuberculosis Fluoroquinolone Resistance Mutations Utilizing the CRISPR-Cas13a System

Objectives CRISPR-Cas13a system-based nucleic acid detection methods are reported to have rapid and sensitive DNA detection. However, the screening strategy for crRNAs that enables CRISPR-Cas13a single-base resolution DNA detection of human pathogens remains unclear. Methods A combined rational design and target mutation-anchoring CRISPR RNA (crRNA) screening strategy was proposed. Results…

Development of Cas12a-Based Cell-Free Small-Molecule Biosensors via Allosteric Regulation of CRISPR Array Expression

In nature, microbes have evolved different systems to sense external stimuli. Synthetic biology approaches (1) repurpose these systems as biosensors to specifically and sensitively detect various targets of interest. Although various highly sensitive and specific laboratory-based analytical methods (including high-performance liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry) can detect small-molecule targets, they…

Collateral cleavage of 28s rRNA by RfxCas13d causes death of mice

Abstract Summary The CRISPR-Cas13 system is an RNA-guided RNA-targeting system, and has been widely used in transcriptome engineering with potentially important clinical applications. However, it is still controversial whether Cas13 exhibits collateral activity in mammalian cells. Here, we found that knocking down gene expression using RfxCas13d in the adult brain…
