Versatile and efficient genome editing with Neisseria cinerea Cas9

PAM identification of NcCas9 by PAM-DOSE The type II-C Cas9 orthologue NcCas9 is of small size (1082 aa) and is closely related to conventional Neisseria meningitidis Cas9 (NmeCas9)11 (Fig. 1a). The NcCas9 is 94% identical to Nme1Cas9, and the divergences lie mainly in the C-terminal PAM-interacting domain (PID) (Fig. 1a and S1)….

How is RNA used in CRISPR and mRNA vaccines?

Why is RNA important in immunity? All organisms, from single-celled bacteria to blue whales, have a genome that’s made of deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA. When it comes to viruses, many use single-stranded ribonucleic acid (RNA). However, certain species (such as rotavirus, which causes gastroenteritis) have a double-stranded RNA genome. The…

Efficient genome editing in wild strains of mice using the i-GONAD method

Mice A laboratory strain B6 was purchased from CLEA Japan Inc. (Tokyo, Japan), while nine wild strains (BFM/2, BLG2, CHD, HMI, KJR, MSM, NJL, PGN2, and SWN) were bred at NIG (Shizuoka, Japan) (Table 1). All mice were maintained at the animal facility in NIG, under specific-pathogen-free conditions and controlled…

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…

The comparisonof the function of crRNA (cr-ribonucleic acid) and tracrRNA (trans-activating crRNA) in the CRISPR-Cas(clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats-CRISPR associated protein 9)system. Introduction: The CRISPR-Cas system is a crucial defense system against foreign invaders, like bacteriophage, transposons, and plasmids in many prokaryotes. There are five genes present on it: tracr, Cas1, Crispr, Cas2, Cas9 on the CRISPR. The tracrRNA and the crRNA have a guiding function in the expression phase of the defense mechanism.
