Exploiting the CRISPR/Cas9 PAM Constraint for Single-Nucleotide Resolution Interventions
CRISPR/Cas9 is an enabling RNA-guided technology for genome targeting and engineering. An acute DNA binding constraint of the Cas9 protein is the Protospacer Adjacent Motif (PAM). Here we demonstrate that the PAM requirement ...
Assembly and Validation of Versatile Transcription Activator-Like Effector Libraries
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-05-06)
The ability to perturb individual genes in genome-wide experiments has been instrumental in unraveling cellular and disease properties. Here we introduce, describe the assembly, and demonstrate the use of comprehensive and ...
Synthetic Mammalian Transgene Negative Autoregulation
Biological networks contain overrepresented small-scale topologies, typically called motifs. A frequently appearing motif is the transcriptional negative-feedback loop, where a gene product represses its own transcription. ...
Mapping the Operational Landscape of MicroRNAs in Synthetic Gene Circuits.
(Nature Partner Journals, 2018-10-22)
MicroRNAs are a class of short, noncoding RNAs that are ubiquitous modulators of gene expression, with roles in development, homeostasis, and disease. Engineered microRNAs are now frequently used as regulatory modules in ...
CRISPR-Based Self-Cleaving Mechanism for Controllable Gene Delivery in Human Cells
(Oxford University Press, 2014-12-18)
Controllable gene delivery via vector-based systems remains a formidable challenge in mammalian synthetic biology and a desirable asset in gene therapy applications. Here, we introduce a methodology to control the copies ...
