TALEN Kits Available from Addgene
TALENs are important new tools for genome engineering. Fusions of transcription activator-like (TAL) effectors of plant pathogenic Xanthomonas spp. to the FokI nuclease, TALENs bind and cleave DNA in pairs. Binding specificity is determined by customizable arrays of polymorphic amino acid repeats in the TAL effectors. Click here to view Addgene's TALEN Guide.
These collections and accompanying documentation allow one to efficiently assemble TALEN constructs with custom repeat arrays.
