DNA that forms a guide RNA to guide cas9 to cut the gene
Cas9 protein in CRISPR-cas9 needs a guide RNA to combine with so that it can cut the certain position on the DNA. In knocking out the argR gene, the guide RNA is transcripted by the loaded DNA.
Usage and Biology
This sequence of DNA is used to help cas9 protein to cut the specific position on the DNA. It is constructed by connecting pUC, Ampr, RBS J23119, pTarget-upArm-gRNA-downarm. It is induced by the arabinose.
- Transform the plasmid pTarget with up-arm, down-arm, and gRNA to the competentE.coli DH10b from company transgene.
- Transform the plasmid pCas into the competent E.coli with previous plasmid mentioned.
- Add arabinose
- Cultivate the E.coli with the temperature at 30 degree Celsius overnight.
- Use colony PCR to test if the gene is successfully knocked out.
- As shown on the graph, the argR is knocked out with the decrease of 500bp which is the length of argR.
