PMCID: 5593860
PMID: 28894087
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-00530-7

[…] plasmids were transfected into hcc cells and selected with puromycin for 7–14 days. hif-1α-stable ko hcc cell lines were established by talen approach. hif-1α-specific tale domains were designed by e-talen software, assembled and cloned into ptalen v2 vector by “tale toolbox”. hif-1α ko construct was transfected into mhcc97l hcc cells, respectively. stable cells were clonally expanded. […]

[…] 10% was shown in hela cell line where a complete abrogation of e7 expression was observed. tools used to design talens aid researchers in targeting specific regions of the gene. while talen-t, e-talen and mojo hand design talens based on genomic context, restriction enzymes and off- target effects, sapta predicts talen activity based on rvd composition and site length, restriction enzymes. […]

[…] was used as a control. cells were collected for further analysis at 72 h post electroporation., talen target sites were designed and constructed according to the instruction provided with the e-talen kit (viewsolid biotech). briefly, units were assembled to construct the tale repeats according to the target sequences, using several rounds of digestion/ligation. the constructed repetitive […]

[…] usa). all primers used in this study are listed in table ., primers f1 and r1 were used to obtain the full sequence of adh2. the 17 bp target sequence of agttggagcataaggat in adh2 was selected using e-talen. the left and right arms of sequence-specific talens (ptalen l48 and ptalen r36) targeting 17 bp sequences adjacent to agttggagcataaggat were constructed through one-step ligation using […]

[…] at the activity of 96 talen pairs determined that 12 pairs had no activity and 43 pairs had activities below 20% in a model cell line. some talen design tools incorporate ranking of talen pairs. the e-talen webtool incorporates a scoring algorithm for ranking potential talens, but this scoring system was not experimentally validated. the second-generation talen design tool sapta (scoring […]
