CRISPR Plasmids: Activate


Catalytically dead dCas9 fused to a transcriptional activator peptide can increase transcription of a specific gene. Design your gRNA sequence to direct the dCas9-activator to promoter or regulatory regions of your gene of interest. If the plasmid that you choose does not also express a gRNA, you will need to use a separate gRNA expression plasmid to target the dCas9-activator to your specific locus.

PLoS Genet. 2015 Dec 29;11(12):e1005751. doi: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1005751. eCollection 2015 Dec. This plasmid contains a Cas9 Activator for yeast. The activator is about 1.2-1.8 X more potent than just dCas9-VP64 fusion in yeast. It is on a single copy CEN/ARS plasmid with Ura marker, pRS416. pRS416
