MC1R CRISPR guide RNA, melanocortin 1 receptor CRISPR guide RNA[human]
gRNA/crRNA for genome editing with WT SpCas9 vector or cas9 protein
The following gRNA sequences were designed by Feng Zhang’s laboratory at the Broad institute* to uniquely target the MC1R gene within the human genome. These gRNA sequences are for use with WT SpCas9, or as crRNA for use with WT SpCas9 protein, to introduce a DSB for genome editing. These sgRNA sequences were validated in Sanjana N.E., Shalem O., Zhang F. Improved vectors and genome-wide libraries for CRISPR screening. Nat Methods. 2014 Aug;11(8):783-4.
Description of MC1R CRISPR guide RNA
The MC1R CRISPR guide RNA sequences shown above were designed by the laboratory of Feng Zhang at the Broad Institute* in order to efficiently target the MC1R gene with minimal risk of off-target Cas9 binding elsewhere in the genome. For complete details on the criteria and process for guide RNA design and selection, please see: Sanjana N.E., Shalem O., Zhang F. Improved vectors and genome-wide libraries for CRISPR screening.

Based on our experience using our design tool to create knock-out cell lines, a single gRNA construct is typically sufficient to knock-out your gene of interest, but to increase your chance of success, we recommend ordering at least two gRNA constructs per gene that you want to target. We recommend that you double-check the gRNA sequences against your target gene sequence of interest before ordering, especially if you are trying to target only one specific splice variant or a specific exon.
When you order gRNA clones from GenScript, we deliver a sequence-verified plasmid containing all elements required for gRNA expression and genome binding: the U6 promoter, spacer (target) sequence, gRNA scaffold, and terminator. You may select from vectors that include selection markers. We guarantee sequence accuracy for gRNA clones we deliver; however, given the complexity of creating genomically edited cell lines, we cannot guarantee the outcome of experiments using our gRNA constructs. If you prefer to receive sequence-validated KO or KI cell lines created using CRISPR technology, please refer to our GenCRISPR™ mammalian cell line service.
Price & Turnaround time of MC1R CRISPR guide RNA
- $199.00/clone includes:
- gRNA design services: Select from gRNAs above, which were designed by the Feng Zhang lab at the Broad Institute to target human and mouse genes with high specificity. Alternatively, our expert scientists will design guide RNA sequences according to your needs, for any species or genome editing strategy, when you use our online request form. We strongly recommend ordering at least 2 or more gRNAs for each target sequence.
- gRNA synthesis and cloning into any vector of your choice, including free all-in-one vectors. The cost for gRNA constructs is $199.00/clone no matter which vector you select. Genscript offers several options for lentiviral or nonviral delivery, all suitable for use in any mammalian system. See our gRNA vector guide for details. If you prefer a different vector, simply mail an aliquot to us and we will perform subcloning at no additional cost.
- GenCRISPR™ gRNA constructs are custom-synthesized and cloned into your choice of vector within 10 business days.
- Our Ph.D.–level gene service representatives can answer any questions you have and help tailor our services to your needs. When you request a quote, we will contact you within 24 hours.
gRNA for transcription activation with SAM
The following gRNA sequences were designed by Feng Zhang’s laboratory at the Broad institute* to uniquely and robustly activate transcription of the endogenous MC1R gene within the human genome when used with the the CRISPR/Cas9 Synergistic Activation Mediators (SAM) complex. These gRNA specifically target the first 200 bp upstream of the transcription start site (TSS). These validated sgRNA sequences were published in Konermann S et al. Genome-scale transcriptional activation by an engineered CRISPR-Cas9 complex. Nature, 2015 Jan 29;517(7536):583-8.
Description of MC1R SAM guide RNA
The MC1R SAM guide RNA sequences shown above will robustly activate transcription of the endogenous MC1R gene within the human genome when delivered in conjunction with all required components of the SAM complex. When you order MC1R SAM gRNA constructs from GenScript, we deliver sequence-verified plasmid DNA containing your selected SAM gRNA sequences cloned into the pLenti_sgRNA(MS2)_zeo vector. You may choose to order at the same time the two other SAM plasmids: lenti dCas9-VP64_Blast and lenti MS2-P65-HSF1_Hygro.
For complete details on the criteria and process for SAM guide RNA design and validation, please see: Konermann et al. Genome-scale transcriptional activation by an engineered CRISPR-Cas9 complex. Nature, doi:10.1038/nature14136.
Price & Turnaround time of MC1R SAM guide RNA
- $199.00 for each SAM gRNA sequence synthesized and cloned into the pLenti_sgRNA(MS2)_zeo vector
- $50.00 each for lenti dCas9-VP64_Blast and lenti MS2-P65-HSF1_Hygro, which can be ordered at the same time.
- Total price for the three-plasmid system: $299.00; additional gRNA are $199.00 each
- 10-day turnaround time

Related gene information of MC1R CRISPR guide RNA
|Entre Gene ID||4157|
|Full Name||melanocortin 1 receptor|
|Summary||This intronless gene encodes the receptor protein for melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH). The encoded protein, a seven pass transmembrane G protein coupled receptor, controls melanogenesis. Two types of melanin exist: red pheomelanin and black eumelanin. Gene mutations that lead to a loss in function are associated with increased pheomelanin production, which leads to lighter skin and hair color. Eumelanin is photoprotective but pheomelanin may contribute to UV-induced skin damage by generating free radicals upon UV radiation. Binding of MSH to its receptor activates the receptor and stimulates eumelanin synthesis. This receptor is a major determining factor in sun sensitivity and is a genetic risk factor for melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. Over 30 variant alleles have been identified which correlate with skin and hair color, providing evidence that this gene is an important component in determining normal human pigment variation.
