Human CRISPR Activation Pooled Library (Calabrese P65-HSF)
(Pooled Library #1000000111, #92379, #92379-LV, #92380, #92380-LV)
The human CRISPR activation library (Calabrese P65-HSF) is in backbone pXPR_502 (P65 HSF). This Calabrese library activates over 18,000 human genes and is used for genome-wide activation screening.
Each gene activated by this library is targeted by 3-6 gRNAs. These gRNAs are split among the two pools: Set A (Cat# 92379) contains gRNAs 1-3, Set B (Cat# 92380) contains gRNAs 4-6. Each pool has a unique set of gRNAs, but both pools are designed to target the same genes. The slight discrepancy in number of genes targeted between Set A and Set B is because not all genes had 6 gRNAs.
Depositor comments: The modified sgRNA tracr has two MS2 loops and two PP7 loops, although only the PP7 loops are used in this library. This library uses two vectors instead of 3, as the PP7-P65-HSF is on same vector as sgRNA itself. It was found that MS2-P65-HST (hygroR) vector gave poor titer. The 6 guides per gene were designed first based on location relative to TSS, then sequence preferences.
