Human CRISPRi-v2 Dual Guide Libraries
(Pooled Libraries #197348, #197349)

  • Purpose

    Dual sgRNA libraries containing a fixed element (non-targeting guide or EMC2 guide) and the well-established Human Genome-wide CRISPRi-v2 library in tandem. One library has a non-targeting control guide and the second library has a guide targeting EMC2, a subunit of the ER membrane complex that when depleted, leads to degradation of the EMC. New libraries can be generated by cloning desired fixed guides into pJR152 and combining with the Human Genome-wide CRISPRi-v2 library.

  • Vector Backbone

    pJR152 - 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 pHR-UCOE-SFFV-Zim3-dCas9-P2A-BFP (Addgene #188767), pHR-UCOE-SFFV-dCas9-XTEN80-KRAB(Kox1)-P2A-EGFP (Addgene #188765), or otherwise used with cell lines already expressing inhibitory dCas9.

Depositor Comments

Algorithm used for analyzing the reads is available here: (Link opens in a new window).

The schematic has two parts, A and B. Part A shows a circular plasmid with mU6 promoter, CR1V2, hU6 promoter, CR3fixed, EF1a promoter, puro, t2A, and BFP features labelled. Part B shows 3 linear pieces of DNA. The top one is labelled CRISPRi V2 library and from left to right contains mU6 promoter, CR1V2, BamHI site, NotI site, EF1a promoter, puro, T2A, and BFP features. Dotted lines from the cut sites lead to the middle piece of DNA  labelled insert. From left to right the insert contains the BamHI site, hU6 promoter, CR3fixed, and NotI site. Next to the middle DNA is labelled BstXI/BlpI annealing and cloning of constant guide. The bottom piece of DNA, labelled dual library, contains all of the features from left to right listed in the plasmid. Under the mU6 promoter is the forward indexed primer depicted as an arrow pointing from left to right. Under the hU6 promoter is the reverse primer (binds hU6) depicted as an arrow pointing from right to left.
  • Dual-guide library design and construction. (A) Schematic of the dual sgRNA vector. Expression of the randomized CRISPRi-v2 sgRNA is driven by a mU6 promoter and the fixed guide is driven by a hU6 promoter, each flanked by unique guide constant regions (CR). Downstream, the EF1a promoter drives the expression of the puromycin resistance selectable marker and BFP. (B) Cloning a dual genome-wide library is comprised of two steps. First, a guide of interest is inserted using standard oligo annealing and ligation into a BstXI/BlpI cut backbone. Second, both CRISPRi-v2 library and the fixed guide are digested with complementary restriction sites (BamHI/NotI) and ligated at scale, resulting in an mU6- ‘V2 guide’-hU6-‘fixed guide’ library design. To sequence the resulting library, a standard 5’ indexed primer is coupled with a reverse primer that anneals to the hU6 region upstream of the inserted fixed guide. This strategy ensures only guides containing the fixed region are amplified for sequencing.
