Vakoc Human Kinase Domain-Focused CRISPR Knockout Library
(Pooled Library #117725)

  • Purpose
    This lentiviral CRISPR knockout library contains gRNAs that target only the kinase domain of protein kinases. Targeting the functional domain of proteins enhances the severity of the negative selection screen, as reported previously by the Vakoc lab ( Shi et al. Nat Biotechnol 2015).
  • Vector Backbone

    LRG2.1 - 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 LentiV_Cas9_puro (Addgene #108100) or otherwise with cell lines expressing Cas9.

Depositor Comments

Lentiviral vectors can recombine during library amplification, resulting in a lower molecular weight band containing the origin and ampicillin resistance cassette. This recombination product should not adversely affect library function as it does not contain lentiviral packaging sequences or the EGFP gene and will not be selected during screening. If a lower molecular weight band is observed 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.
