Scientific Background: CRISPR-Cas systems constitute the adaptive immune system in bacteria via RNA-guided endonucleases (1,2). This system has been redesigned to create an exemplary genome editing tool for application to RNA-based therapeutics development (3). PsmCas13b (Prevotella sp. MA2016 Cas13b) is a CRISPR-Cas effector that belongs to the class 2 subtype VI-B, and has been shown to effectively target and silence distinct mammalian ssRNA viruses (3,4). Cas13b processes its own CRISPR array with short and long direct repeats, cleaves target RNA, and exhibits collateral RNase activity (4).
