Cutting Edge Agriculture Gene Editing with Cas-CLOVER

Blog Agriculture Biotechnology Though CRISPR-Cas enabled targeted genome engineering across a vast array of organisms, the system features major disadvantages. Frequent off-target mutagenesis, licensing restrictions and non-ideal economic license terms have inhibited commercial crop-science product upscaling, and, in many cases, entirely disqualified CRISPR’s use by many commercial crop developers. Seeking…

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…

LAMP-CRISPR-Cas12a-lateral flow immunochromatographic strip | IDR

Introduction About 700,000 people die from “superbugs” globally every year. Antibiotic abuse is the culprit of extensive spread of superbugs. Currently, carbapenemase-producing organisms are among the most important pathogens of hospital infections. Especially the plasmid-mediated highly transmissible carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales (CRE) has become an important public health issue of global concern….

Structural basis for mismatch surveillance by CRISPR/Cas9

Abstract The widespread use of CRISPR/Cas9 as a programmable genome editing tool has been hindered by off-target DNA cleavage (Cong et al., 2013; Doudna, 2020; Fu et al., 2013; Jinek et al., 2013). While analysis of such off-target editing events have enabled the development of Cas9 variants with greater discrimination…

The Point of Base Editors: Correcting Point Mutations

Some genome editing systems are highly conspicuous. They introduce double-strand breaks to DNA that attract the attention of cellular mechanisms such as nonhomologous end joining and homology-directed repair. If a genome editing system is so brash as to attempt a sizable insertion of new DNA, homology-directed repair must ensure that…
