New CRISPR gRNA Lentivector Cloning Kits

publication date: Aug 22, 2016
author/source: AMSBIO

Anglo-American life science firm AMSBIO has introduced new CRISPR gRNA Lentivector Cloning Kits that provide scientists with a targeted and precise genomic gene editing methodology.

gRNA lentivector cloning kitsTargeted and precise genomic gene editing technologies are today key tools for genomic correction, modification and gene therapy.  The recently discovered CRISPR/Cas gene editing technique offers higher targeting accuracy, much more target sequence selection, much less complexity and less off-target cell toxicity than the previous generation genome editing technologies.

To enable CRISPR genomic editing, the AMSBIO kit provides the standalone premade Cas9 expression lentivirus, and the gRNA lentivector cloning kits from which you can construct your desired target gRNA lentivectors. Applying both Cas9 lentivirus and gRNA lentivirus allows you to achieve the target knockOut or modification (knockIn) when a donor DNA is also applied.

The new kits enable rapid, precisely directional cloning of your DNA duplex encoded gRNA structure at efficiencies of greater than 95%. Also incorporating a pre-linearized lentivector the kit eliminates the need for tedious preparation of a lentivector backbone. The lentivector included in each AMSBIO kit encodes an antibiotic marker or a dual marker (a fluorescent-antibiotic fusion marker) allowing generation of stable cell lines for long-term gRNA expression. There are two promoters available: U6 and an optional inducible H1 promoter. The gRNA lentivectors driven by the inducible H1 promoter can be used for constitutive high expression without the need for induction. This modified H1 promoter allows the inducible expression of gRNA when the tetracycline repressor protein (TetR) is present in advance and the U6 promoter is the constitutive promoter.

Founded in 1987, AMS Biotechnology (AMSBIO) is recognized today as a leading company contributing to the acceleration of discovery through the provision of cutting-edge life science technology, products and services for research and development in the medical, nutrition, cosmetics and energy industries. AMSBIO is able to draw upon in-depth expertise in extracellular matrices to provide elegant solutions for studying cell motility, migration, invasion and proliferation. Widely acknowledged as an expert in cell culture, AMSBIO partners with clients in tailoring cell systems to enhance organoid and spheroid type screening outcomes from a technological and cost-effective perspective.
