Description

The CRISPi Kit contains basic elements for performing CRISPR/Cas9 mediated gene and genome editing in the yeast P. pastoris. The kit contains seven different backbone 3 (BB3) vectors with functional Cas9 and sgRNA expression cassettes and three different selection markers.

Each CRISPi BB3 carries:

  • S. cerevisiae CEN6/ARS4 sequence for episomal plasmid maintenance, enabling the recovery of plasmid free cells after successful genome engineering
  • Human codon-optimized hCas9 gene fused to a nuclear localization signal (NLS) under control of a constitutive promoter (original Cas9 sequence - Addgene #43802)
  • An insertion site for the sgRNA with flanking ribozyme sequences under control of the P. pastoris PGAP promoter
  • A marker cassette for yeast/E. coli selection natMX (nourseothricin (NTC) selection), hphMX (hygromycin B) or kanMX (geneticin (G418))

All plasmids were assembled using the GoldenPiCS Kit (Addgene Kit #1000000133).

CRISPi-Figure 2.png

Single guide (sg) RNA construction and assembly into CRISPi plasmids. (A) sgRNA constructs are assembled by overlap extension (OE) PCR of 6 overlapping primers. The variable sequence is covered by two primers (1_sgRNA_fw and 2_sgRNA_fw) and the structural part containing sgRNA and flanking ribozymes is made up by four primers (D_sgRNA_struc_fw and A, B and C_sgRNA_struc_rev). (B) The final HH-sgRNA-HDV construct is flanked by BpiI restriction sites with open fusion site Fs2 (5´) and Fs3 (3´). (C) CRISPi plasmids harbor all elements required for hCas9 and sgRNA expression in P. pastoris, HH–sgRNA–HDV and an empty HH–sgRNA–HDV expression cassette with internal BpiI sites between the sgRNA promoter and terminator (Fs 2,3 linker), allowing direct assembly of the final plasmids (D). (E) Final plasmids feature a CEN6/ARS4 sequence for episomal expression, a resistance marker for positive selection in E. coli and P. pastoris, an expression unit for the hCas9 (3 different promoters PPFK300, PLAT1 and PScTEF1 available) and the expression unit for the HH–sgRNA–HDV unit under control of the PGAP promoter and the TRPS25A terminator.
