Mouse Validation (mVAL) CRISPR Library
(Pooled Library #159391)

  • Purpose

    This lentiviral CRISPR knockout library targets 182 core intrinsic immune evasion genes using sgRNAs selected from the mTKO library. It is designed for focused loss-of-function screening against a core set of genes shown to increase sensitivity or resistance of cancer cells to cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) -mediated toxicity.

  • Vector Backbone

    pLCKO2 - does not express Cas9

Available to Academic and Nonprofits Only
  • A Cas9 plasmid is NOT included with this item and will have to be ordered separately. Can be used in conjunction with Lenti-Cas9-2A-Blast (Addgene #73310) or any other plasmid or cell line stably expressing Cas9.

Library Details

  • Species
  • Genes targeted
  • gRNAs
  • Controls
    728 control gRNAs target 182 genes with no significant immune evasion fitness profile
    100 gRNA target LacZ, EGFP, and luciferase
    100 gRNA targeting intergenic regions
  • Lentiviral Generation

Library Shipping

This library is delivered as suspended DNA in a microcentrifuge tube on blue ice. The tube's contents will not necessarily be frozen. For best results, minimize freeze-thaws.

  • Volume
    ∼20 µL
  • Concentration
    25 ng/µL

Depositor Comments

The depositing lab recommends using Bayestian Analysis of Gene Essentiality (BAGEL) to analyze fold changes.

MAGeCK/MAGeCK-VISPR algorithms can also be used for analysis.

The DrugZ algorithm is recommended for drug screens.
