CRISPR-SpRYgests Enable Precise Cleavage of DNA Bases In Vitro

NEW YORK — A CRISPR-Cas variant engineered to no longer need a protospacer adjacent motif (PAM) can be harnessed to make cuts at any DNA base in vitro, a new study reports. Its ability to make precise breaks anywhere could be applied to a number of DNA engineering applications. Researchers…

Bio-informatic analysis of CRISPR protospacer adjacent motifs (PAMs) in T4 genome | BMC Genomic Data

The clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats-Cas (CRISPR-Cas) defensive system is an acquired mechanism in prokaryotes which is analogous to RNAi in eukaryotes [1]. The CRISPR machinery is a complex immune strategy that is continually evolving in the bacterial genome to accommodate the rapid changes in the nucleic acids of…

CRISPR Applications in Medicine Depend on Minimizing Off-Target Editing

By Rolf Turk, PhD Genome editing technologies, such as CRISPR, are being applied to better understand basic biological systems as well as to research new kinds of gene and cell therapies. The CRISPR-Cas9 system comprises a Cas9 endonuclease protein that forms a complex with a guide RNA (gRNA) molecule, which…

High-purity production and precise editing of DNA base editing ribonucleoproteins

Abstract Ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complex–mediated base editing is expected to be greatly beneficial because of its reduced off-target effects compared to plasmid- or viral vector–mediated gene editing, especially in therapeutic applications. However, production of recombinant cytosine base editors (CBEs) or adenine base editors (ABEs) with ample yield and high purity in…

CRISPR: Guide to gRNA design

Introduction to CRISPR in SnapGene Genome editing technology has been evolving for many years. The Holy Grail of genome engineering has always been to introduce a specific genetic change that affects only the genomic target and leaves no undesired changes in the DNA. The discovery and application of the bacterial…
