The CRISPR/Cas9 Kinase Knockout Lentivirus Library (Array Format) targets 619 human kinases and pseudo-kinases.bpsbioscience.com/media/wysiwyg/Kinases/Kinase_Library_-_List_Kinases_Pseudokinases_06-15-2022.xlsx Download the table to view all available kinases. The Array consists of a series of vials, with each vial containing a mixture of integrating CRISPR/Cas9 lentiviral particles targeting 5 sgRNAs for a specific gene (1 vial per gene, 5 sgRNAs per gene). The Array also includes a total of 150 control sgRNAs that do not target any gene (combined into 30 vials containing 5 control sgRNAs per vial). Thus, the Array contains a total of 649 vials and 3,245 sgRNAs.The lentiviruses are replication incompetent, VSV-G pseudotyped lentiviral particles ready to infect almost all types of mammalian cells, including primary and non-dividing cells. The SIN (self-inactivation) lentiviral backbone contains the Cas9 gene (Streptococcus pyogenes CRISPR associated protein 9) driven by an EF1a promoter, an sgRNA driven by a U6 promoter, and a puromycin selection marker.The lentiviruses integrate randomly into the cellular genome to express both Cas9 and the sgRNAs. Because the lentiviruses contain Cas9, they can be used in any target cell regardless of whether the cells already express Cas9. Puromycin selection ensures high expression of both Cas9 and the sgRNAs. Knockout efficiencies will depend on the cell type and the gene of interest. Stable CRISPR/Cas9 knockout cell lines can also be generated following limiting dilution.The library is delivered with a User Manual booklet.
