Genome-wide Mouse Lentiviral CRISPR gRNA Library v1
(Pooled Library #50947)

  • Purpose

    Note: This library has been replaced by an updated version (see below).

    A gRNA library against 19,150 mouse protein coding genes, designed for use in lentivirus.

  • Vector Backbone

    pKLV-U6gRNA(BbsI)-PGKpuro2ABFP- does not express Cas9

Pooled Library 50947
  • gRNA pooled library

Available to Academic and Nonprofits Only
  • A Cas9 plasmid is NOT included with this item and will have to be ordered separately, or be used with cell lines already expressing Cas9.

gRNA library construction. A pool of 87,897 79-mer oligonucleotides was purchased from CustomArray Inc. They were converted into double-stranded DNA by PCR and 26bp fragments were excised by BbsI digestion and purified from a PAGE gel. Transformation of DH10B E. coli with the ligated DNA yielded a plasmid library derived from approximately 15 million E. coli colonies. The gRNA is immediately downstream of the U6 promoter.

The construct containing Cas9, pPB-LR5.1-EF1a-puro2ACas9, may be obtained from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Archives.
