Programmable CRISPR-Based Tool ‘Pastes’ in New Genes While Avoiding Double-Strand Breaks

NEW YORK — Researchers at MIT have developed a programmable tool that combines CRISPR and integrases to cut out unwanted stretches of DNA and paste in a replacement. While CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing can make such swaps, it is limited by the need for double-stranded DNA breaks, which can induce undesired…

Multidrug resistance microbial therapy | VMRR

Introduction Antimicrobials are the most important and useful therapeutic discovery in the history of medicine. It allows living beings to survive the microbial disease, enhances invasive surgical procedures, ensures animal health, and protects the food chain since 1928 after the discovery of penicillin. However, the indiscriminate use of antibiotics and…

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…

Rapid genome editing by CRISPR-Cas9-POLD3 fusion

Precision CRISPR gene editing relies on the cellular homology-directed DNA repair (HDR) to introduce custom DNA sequences to target sites. The HDR editing efficiency varies between cell types and genomic sites, and the sources of this variation are incompletely understood. Here, we have studied the effect of 450 DNA repair…
