A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made byThe human codon-optimized hCas9 insert in this vector was amplified from plasmid hCas9 (George Church; Addgene #41815) and D10A mutation was induced by PCR.

This plasmid vector was constructed by mutation PCR of pCAG-T3-hCAS9-pA plasmid vector (Addgene plasmid 48625) using the primers (Forward primer, 5’-AGTACTCCATTGGGCTCGccATCGGCACAAAC, and Reverse primer, 5’-CGAGCCCAATGGAGTACTTCTTGTCGGCTGC).
For the in vitro synthesis of CAS9 D10A mRNAs, the vector was linearized by SphI and in-vitro transcribed using T3-RNA-polymerase (Promega) in the presence of m7G(5′)ppp(5′)G to synthesize capped RNA.
The Tbpl1 3′UTR 95 nucleotide polyA tail at the 3' end of the insert allows in vitro transcribed mRNA from this plasmid to be used directly for microinjection into animal embryos or oocytes without additional polyadenylation treatment.
The CAG promoter in this plasmid also allows it to be used as a CAS9-expression vector.
