Depositor Comments

The DNA fragment encoding the effector domain is synthesized by PCR and cloned between the MluI and AsiSI sites of pHAGE EF1α dCas9-NED to create in-frame fusion between dCas9 (D10A, H840A) and the effector domain. If the experimental strategy requires testing the effector domain in a transient transfection system before establishing stably expressing cell lines, it is recommended to construct the dCas9-effector domain fusion first in pdCas9-NED (Addgene plasmid #109358), then excise the coding sequence of the effector domain by AscI-PacI double digestion, and clone the fragment between the MluI and AsiSI sites of pHAGE EF1α dCas9-NED. Ligation of the MluI end to the compatible AscI end preserves the reading frame (Goubert et al. 2018).
