Alternative name (s) :Csn1, Csx12, Spy_1046, SpyCas9, Uniprot accession Q99ZW2.

Formulation :Recombinant protein stored in 50mM sodium phosphate, pH 7.5, 300mM NaCl, 150mM imidazole, 1mM DTT, 10% glycerol.

Storage and Stability :Store product at –70oC. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles. Always include RNase inhibitor at manufacturer recommended concentrations in Cas enzyme reactions.

Scientific Background :In bacteria and archaea CRISPR- Cas systems provide sequence based adaptive immunity against mobile genetic elements such as phages and plasmids (1). Cas9 is a multidomain nuclease from the bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes characteristic of type II CRISPR- Cas systems (2). Using single guide RNA (sgRNA), Cas9 is targeted to specific genomic loci where it generates a blunt ended double strand beak (3). Cas9 can be used for genetic engineering experiments such as genome editing and generating transgenic models (4).
