News about Epigentek


The discovery of CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) and Cas9 (CRISPR associated system or CRISPR associated protein 9 nuclease) found in bacteria to work as a defense mechanism against foreign DNA, has proven to be an invaluable tool to target and modify a genetic sequence in gene editing and genome engineering applications. The system, known as CRISPR/Cas9, allows for sequence-specific cleavage of a targeted genomic locus by delivering the RNA-guided nuclease (Cas9) and appropriate guide RNAs (gRNA) into a cell. In addition, Protospacer Adjacent Motif (PAM) sequence immediately following the specificity sequence is necessary for successful binding of the Cas9 nuclease.

Epigentek offers a monoclonal CRISPR/Cas9 antibody, ideal for immunofluorescence applications, as well as a polyclonal CRISPR/Cas9 antibody, ideal for immunoprecipitation applications.

Anti-Cas9 antibodies can be used for:

- Detection of CRISPR/Cas9 expression in target cells by WB, IF, IP or ELISA to confirm whether gRNA and Cas9 vectors are
  successfully transfected
- Detection of genome-wide off- and on-target effects of CRISPR/Cas9 on the specific gene sites by Cas9 ChIP-seq in CRISPR
  genome editing
