[…] of regenerating successfully edited plants, designing highly specific and effective grnas is important. multiple bioinformatics tools, such as wheatcrispr (cram et al., submitted), e-crisp and crisprdirect, have been developed to facilitate the design of grnas targeting specific loci in the wheat genome and prediction of off-target sites. among these, the wheatcrispr tool offers a distinct […]

[…] numerical aperture of 1.40. light and fluorescent whole animal images were collected on a leicamz10f dissecting microscope. all pictures were processed in adobe photoshop., grnas were designed using crisprdirect [] using the tcas3 genome assembly for the specificity check. only high-quality grnas were selected. 20-mer protospacer sequences were cloned into bsai-digested pu6b-bsai-grna [] […]

[…] plasmid, was used to make px330-sgebv, which introduces a single cut to the target site (). the target sequence of the crispr/cas9 plasmid was chosen by subjecting the 1088-bp sequence to crisprdirect ( so far, the crispr/cas9 plasmid did not show any off-target effects, which can be manifested by cell growth retardation or cell death of the host cells. […]

[…] adding preheated medium (42 °c) to the cells, which were then incubated at 42 °c for 1 h., zc3h11a was knocked out in hela cells using crispr/cas9. a specific grna for zc3h11a was designed using the crisprdirect tools (). a grna expression cassette containing the u6 promoter, the grna, a grna scaffold, and a termination signal () was synthesized by integrated dna technologies (fig. s1a).
