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)….

C698R mutation in Lrsam1 gene impairs nerve regeneration in a CMT2P mouse model

Animal generation The Lrsam1C698R knock-in mice were generated on a C57Bl/6J background using the CRISPR/Cas9 technique. Briefly, single-cell zygotes from C57BL/6J mice were microinjected with mRNA encoding Cas9 and a guide sequence (5′-ACAGCAGCAGACGTGGCCAC-3′ at 20 ng/µl) to target the exon 26 of Lrsam1. A single stranded DNA oligo carrying the C698R mutation…

Cristae-dependent quality control of the mitochondrial genome

S. cerevisiae cells distinguish between WT and mutant mtDNA. (A) Schematic illustration of the pedigree analysis. Two Δarg8 yeast strains harboring WT or Δcob::ARG8 mtDNA were mated. Zygotes were isolated, and daughter cells from up to five consecutive generations were separated and placed on free spots on the agar plate…

2020 Heritable Human Genome Editing – Genômica

  editing methodologies. It is possible that continuing research may yield new methodologies that rapidly supersede the safety and efficacy of current editing approaches. Non-Heritable Genome Editing: The Use of Genome Editing in Somatic Cells One potential alternative to HHGE for the treatment of genetic dis- eases is somatic genome…
