T7 promoter + hACE2 target RNA coding sequence
A T7 promoter is added to 5' end of hACE2 gene （human angiotensin converting enzyme 2) This part is the template for RNA in vitro synthesis. The product will be the mRNA of hACE2 used in verification of RfxCas13d 's cleavage activity in virto.
The double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) carrying T7 promoter sequence were prepared by PCR. Then the transcription reaction was carried out with DNA templates using the T7 High-Efficiency Transcription Kit (TransGen Biotech) at 37°C (1 h). The RNA was purified by the Easy Pure RNA Purification Kit (TransGen Biotech) and quantified with Nanodrop.Then purified RNA’s quality was assayed by nondenaturing agarose gel electrophoresis.
In addition, we tested the targeting effect of sgRNA by in vitro enzyme activity assay. When RfxCas13d is activated by sgRNA and will cut reporter. The reporter will emit green fluorescence. The dynamic changes of fluorescence were observed using a qPCR instrument (ABI, USB). As shown, RfxCas13d cleaved fluorescent reporter showed considerable activity in the presence of sgRNA.
