Teichmann Retroviral Mouse Genome-wide CRISPR Knockout Library
(Pooled Library #104861)

  • Purpose

    This retroviral CRISPR library targets 18,424 mouse genes using the gRNAs designed by the Kosuke Yusa Lab. The use of retrovirus enables this library to be used for cell lines that are poorly infected by lentivirus.

  • Vector Backbone

    pMSCV-U6sgRNA(BbsI)-PGKpuro2ABFP - does not express Cas9

  • A Cas9 plasmid is NOT included with this item and will have to be ordered separately. Can be used in conjunction with other plasmid(s) or cell lines expressing mouse Cas9.

Depositor Comments

The depositing lab recommends 3-5 electroporations for amplification.

NOTE: Retroviral vectors can recombine during library amplification, resulting in an ~2kb band containing the origin and ampicillin resistance cassette. This recombination product should not adversely affect library function as it does not contain retroviral packaging sequences or mammalian selection markers. If this 2kb band forms the predominant product after amplification, we recommend starting with a larger prep (gigaprep) from the original sample or gel purifying the amplified library to remove the recombinant band and performing another transformation with the purified sample.
