Gene Knock-in Services with CRISPR/Cas9 Technology

Gene Knock-in Services with CRISPR/Cas9 Technology Inquiry

CRISPR/Cas9 technology is an emerging method which can be used to improve crop properties such as high yields and nutrients, resistance to disease, pests, or drought tolerance. Based on the homology-directed repair (HDR) pathway of the DSB, the CRISPR/Cas9 system can be used for precise knock-in genetic manipulation. Lifeasible has a wealth of successful gene editing cases and can provide a full set of plant genome editing solutions, including gene knock-in and many other gene editing technologies.

CRISPR/Cas9 technology greatly reduces the difficulty of the technique of targeted insertion or replacement (Knock-in) of a sequence on a plant chromosome. When Cas9/gRNA cleaves the target site, the gene fragment located on the donor DNA can be integrated into the DSB site by HDR recombination if the cell has a DNA donor fragment homologous to the target site sequence. Lifeasible has developed a proven platform for gene knock in in many plant species.

  • Service Strategy
    • Using a proprietary vector for DNA donors, the efficiency of knock-in was enhanced by increasing the copy number of donor DNA.
    • Cas9 and a pair of gRNAs are used to "cut" a sequence from the DNA donor and then "paste" it into the target site of the plant genome. This strategy utilizes the NHEJ pathway that dominates DSB repair.
