GeneWeld Vectors for Targeted Integration Using CRISPR/Cas9
(Kit # 1000000154 )

Depositing Lab:   Jeffrey Essner

Vectors for integration using short homology and CRISPR/Cas9. The vectors provide the ability and flexibility to produce knockout alleles with and without a fluorescent reporter, fusion proteins with endogenous genes, and Cre drivers.

This kit will be sent as bacterial glycerol stocks in 96-well plate format.

Description

The GeneWeld Kit can be used for targeted integration in human cells, zebrafish embryos, and pig fibroblasts. GeneWeld uses the CRISPR/Cas9 system, along with a donor vector, to create knock-ins including fluorescent reporters, fusion proteins, and transcriptional regulators. Donor vectors with as little as 24 to 48 base pairs of homology can be used to direct knock-in sequences to a genomic loci of interest.

To generate a knock-in using CRISPR/Cas9, Cas9 is used to generate a double-stranded DNA break at three locations: the genomic loci of interest, and on either side of the homology arms within the donor vector. This is accomplished using an sgRNA targeting the knock-in site, as well as a universal sgRNA targeting the donor vector sequence. This universal sgRNA is not predicted to target any sites in human, pig, or zebrafish genomic DNA. The excised homology arms on either side of the donor plasmid cargo are complementary to the DNA on each side of the double-stranded break at the genomic loci of interest. This initiates homology-mediated end joining, resulting in a knock-in at the locus of interest.

A detailed protocol describing this methodology can be found under Protocols & Resources.
