Human CRISPR lncRNA Activation Pooled Library (SAM - 3 plasmid system)
(Pooled Library #1000000106)

  • Purpose

    This human CRISPR/Cas9 Synergistic Activation Mediator (SAM) pooled library uses an engineered protein complex for the transcriptional activation of lncRNAs.

    This library consists of three components which are all provided:

    1. A nucleolytically inactive Cas9-VP64 fusion (Addgene plasmid # 61425)
    2. A gRNA incorporating two MS2 RNA aptamers at the tetraloop, stem-loop 2, and EF1a-zeo resistance marker (present in the library)
    3. The MS2-P65-HSF1 plasmid which expresses the activation helper protein (lentiMPH v2) (Addgene plasmid #89308)

Library Details

  • Species
  • Genes targeted
    10,504 transcriptional start sites (TSS)
  • gRNAs
  • Controls
  • Lentiviral Generation

Library Shipping

Each library is delivered in a microcentrifuge tube on blue ice. The tube's contents will not necessarily be frozen. For best results, minimize freeze-thaws.

  • Volume
    ∼20 µL
  • Concentration
    50 ng/µL

You will also receive bacterial stabs of the lentiMPH plasmid (Addgene #89308) and dCas9-VP64-Blast (Addgene #61425). Please do NOT order these plasmids in addition to this library.

Resource Information

Depositor Comments

This library targets 10,504 unique lncRNA transcriptional start sites (>50 bp apart) annotated in RefSeq and Cabili catalogs (∼10 sgRNAs per lncRNA).
