Optimizing the CAS9 messenger RNA for vector-free gene editing
Sequence engineering and chemical modification of CAS9 mRNA
For transgenesis and therapeutic perspectives, vector-free delivery of the CAS9 for gene editing is highly preferable. It avoids the risk of hitting the genome due to the vector integration. Directly using CAS9 mRNA is a top option.
Furthermore, as a new promising class of therapeutic biologics, messenger RNA are the subject of numerous studies.
This year, Matthew Porteus’s and Trilink’s teams revealed key and practical results at the ASGC with a poster you can download below.
Notably, there is a large screen of the mRNA CAS9 modifications based on the indel formation. This interesting comparison includes also CAS9 RNP and reveals the high performance of the CleanCap U-depleted 5-moU CAS9 mRNA. We can also note that for the CleanCap CAS9 mRNA HPLC purification is not required.
