CRISPR gRNA library service

CRISPR gRNA library service

Pooled CRISPR guide RNA libraries, or gRNA libraries, are ideal for high-throughput screening of important molecular targets. These libraries leverage the efficiency and specificity of the CRISPR gene editing technology to either knock-out gene expression or transcriptionally activate genes in the genome.

GenScript offers a variety of gRNA library options, all of which contain sequences pre-validated by the Broad Institute, including (1) GeCKO libraries for genome-wide knockout of human and mouse genes, (2) CRISPR Synergistic Activating Mediator (SAM) libraries for transcriptional activation of every gene in the human and mouse genome, and (3) Pathway-focused gRNA libraries that genes with a specific function.

How are CRISPR libraries used?

Screening using the CRISPR technology is particularly advantageous because of its simplicity, specificity and versatility. The genome-wide GeCKO and SAM libraries were designed to target every gene in the mouse or human genes and knock-out or transcriptionally activate each gene, respectively. Pathway-focused gRNA libraries were designed from targets identified through the Drug Gene Interaction Database, providing application-focused gRNA libraries for more simplified screening. Libraries are amplified, packaged and transduced into host cells to generate mutant cell lines (Figure 1). The mutants can then be screened under specific conditions, such as by positive or negative selection, to identify important genes in a pathway.

Pathway-focused CRISPR gRNA library

Pathway-focused pooled gRNA libraries are ideal for targeted screening of specific pathways of importance. Designed using gene targets identified through the Drug Gene Interaction Database, these libraries are ideal for thorough screening of pathway or disease-focused genes. All gRNA sequences have been pre-designed and validated by the Broad Institute and cloned into pLentiCRISPR v2 vector backbones. All libraries are delivered Transfection Grade and ready for immediate lentiviral packaging. For more information on the gRNA sequences covered in the library, click on the library hyperlink.

The pathway-focused libraries are available as Transfection Grade, and available for next-day shipping (depending on availability).

GeCKO library for genome-scale knock-out

The genome-scale CRISPR knock-out (GeCKO) v2 libraries enable rapid screening for loss-of-function mutations that produce a desired phenotype in human or mouse cells. GenScript is pleased to offer all eight GeCKO v2 CRISPR libraries developed in Feng Zhang's laboratory through a license with the Broad Institute.* GeCKO libraries are mixed pools of guide RNA targeting each gene and miRNA within the mouse or human genome; the improved GeCKO v2.0 libraries also contain non-targeting gRNA to serve as controls and utilize improved lentiviral vectors for high-titer lentivirus production and highly efficient transduction of primary cells. GeCKO libraries have been used in primary mouse and human cells, stem cells, cancer cells, and stable cell lines. GeCKO library screens allows you to identify genes that are essential for cell viability under different conditions, as well as genes whose loss enables drug resistance in cancer cells. For complete details of GeCKOv2 library design & construction, please see: Sanjana N.E., Shalem O., Zhang F. Improved vectors and genome-wide libraries for CRISPR screening. Nat Methods. 2014 Aug;11(8):783-4. doi: 10.1038/nmeth.3047.

GeCKO v2 libraries are available as two half-libraries, A and B. Each library contains 3gRNAs per gene. Both libraries contain 1,000 non-targeting control sgRNAs. The A library contains gRNAs targeting miRNAs (4 sgRNAs per miRNA) as well. The A and B libraries can be purchased and delivered together to ensure complete representation; however, as more cells are required for both libraries, screening with library A is suggested. For additional information on how to amplify and clone the libraries, please refer to http://genome-engineering.org/gecko/.

CRISPR transcriptional activation SAM library

SAM libraries induce robust transcriptional activation for genome-wide gain-of-function screening

The SAM library enables gain-of-function screening in human cells by inducing robust, specific transcriptional activation of each coding region in the genome in a single screen. CRISPR/Cas9 Synergistic Activation Mediator (SAM) is a protein complex engineered to enable robust transcriptional activation of endogenous genes. SAM takes advantage of the specificity and ease of reprogramming of Cas9 nucleases, which are targeted to a specific locus in the genome by guide RNA. The SAM complex includes three transcription activation domains VP64, P65, and HSF1 which synergistically enhance transcription when targeted to any site within 200bp upstream of a transcription start site. SAM uses a nucleolytically inactive Cas9 to ensure that no strand breaks are introduced into endogenous genome.

The human genome-wide SAM library activates all known coding isoforms in the RefSeq database (23,430 isoforms) for gain-of-function screening. SAM libraries have been used in primary mouse and human cells, stem cells, cancer cells, and stable cell lines. SAM library screens allow you to identify genes that are essential for cell viability under different conditions, as well as genes whose loss enables drug resistance in cancer cells.

How to use SAM libraries for gain-of-function screens

The SAM library is a mixed pool of CRISPR guide RNAs that target immediately upstream of every transcription start site in the genome. For SAM gain-of-function screening, the human genome-wide SAM sgRNA library has to be combined with two additional SAM constructs – dCas9-VP64 and MS2-P-HSF1. Read More »

Three components -- dCas9-VP64, sgRNA-MS2, and MS2-p-HSF1 – form the assembled SAM complex


SAM Library Components

The SAM complex consists of three components:

  • A nucleolytically inactive Cas9-VP64 fusion
  • An sgRNA incorporating two MS2 RNA aptamers at the tetraloop and stem-loop
  • The MS2-P65-HSF1 activation helper protein

The inSC17xx-1corporation of three distinct activation domains - VP64, p65 and HSF1 – into the complex aids robust transcriptional activation through synergy. Each of the three components are encoded on a separate lentiviral vector as described below. All three vectors must be co-transduced in order for SAM to be active All SAM human genome-wide guide RNA library sequences are available in this .csv file.
