Part:BBa_K2306013

Designed by: Jeroen Jacques and Jasper Veerman   Group: iGEM17_TUDelft   (2017-10-13)


Cas13a spacer with flanking double repeats (with constitutive promoter)

This part is a composition of a constitutive promoter (BBa_J23119) and the Cas13a spacer with flanking double repeats (BBa_K2306015). This promoter is also used by Gootenberg et al. 2017 for the CRISPR array of Cas13a.

Usage and Biology

This biobrick can be used in combination with parts encoding for Cas13a. This part encodes for the transcription of CRISPR guide RNA (crRNA).

By digestion with BsaI the spacer will be removed leaving two sticky ends. A new spacer can then be ligated in the array using sticky end ligation.

When designing a new spacer to ligate into the array, make sure it contains the right sticky ends at both ends. One might consider to use our Cas13a spacer design tool to design crRNAs that meet all the requirements.

A terminator should be added downstream of the array.
