Depositor Comments

This dual gRNA expression plasmid is used to target both LdBPK_241510.1 and LdMT gene. In the article, it was used to generate the targeted chromosome translocations between chromosome 13 and 24 and to enrich the edited LdBPK_241510.1 mutants by selection with miltefosine. For addgene customers, this dual gRNA expression plasmid will mainly be used as the PCR template to generate new double gRNAs expression vector or co-targeting MT vector. See article for more detail.
