Human CRISPR Metabolic Gene Knockout Library
(Pooled Library #110066)

  • Purpose

    This lentiviral CRISPR library targets 2,981 human metabolic genes with 29,790 guide RNAs. The library contains ~10 gRNAs per gene.

  • Vector Backbone

    lentiCRISPR v1- does express Cas9

    Note: This plasmid has been discontinued, as an updated version is available. For confirmation of screen hits, Addgene encourages recipient scientists to use the updated lentiCRISPR v2, which can be requested separately.
