General description

The Sigma lenti CRISPR Non-Targeting Control is a lentiviral plasmid vector, which includes a gRNA sequence that does not target known human, mouse and rat genes. This vector is useful as a negative control in experiments using Sigma CRISPR lentiviral clones. The Sigma lenti CRISPR non-targeting control uses a one-plasmid system consisting of a EF1-alpha-driven Cas9, a U6-driven guide RNA (non-targeting), with both Puromycin and GFP co-expressed with Cas9.

Ampicillin and puromycin antibiotic resistance genes provide selection in bacterial or mammalian cells, respectively. Also, self-inactivating replication incompetent viral particles can be produced in packaging cells (HEK293T) by co-transfection with compatible packaging plasmids (Product No. SHP001).

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/CRISPR-associated (Cas), originally found in bacteria and archaea, is employed by organisms to protect them from invading viruses and plasmids.
