The XTN™ site-specific nuclease technology can be used in conjunction with Transposagen’s other core technology, piggyBac™, as the only system in the world that allows for Footprint-Free™ genetic engineering down to a single base pair. The gene editing vectors empower researchers to specifically knock-in a genetic change of interest such as a base pair, select for the correct genetic change and then remove the selectable marker leaving behind only the change of interest. The Footprint-Free™ excision eliminates the need to pick and screen sometimes hundreds of cellular clones which is extremely expensive, time consuming and laborious.
APPLICATIONS OF FOOTPRINT- FREE GENE EDITING
- Custom genetically engineered cell lines
- Custom genetically engineered animal models
- Validation of GWAS study results
- Cellular therapies
- Correct mutations in
The Multivector is Transposagen’s premiere footprint-free gene editing vector. The Multivector was created as a flexible tool to enable generation of targeting vectors for both animal and human genome editing projects. It contains the piggyBac transposon elements, drug resistance genes, LoxP recombination sites, and unique restriction sites to accommodate a variety of research project requirements
|PiggyBac (pB) Inverted Terminal Repeats (ITRs)||Footprint-free removal of cassette/pBase insertion of cassette|
|LoxP sites||Removal of resistance cassette|
|PGK/EM7 promoter||Drive resistance gene expression in mammalian/bacterial cells|
|Puromycin resistance gene||Selection of clones|
|Neomycin resistance gene||Selection of clones|
|Truncated Thymidine Kinase gene (TK)||Selection for cassette removal using ganciclovir|
|Compatible sites (EcoR1/Mfe and Avr2/Nhe)||Easy removal/replacement of LoxP site(s)|
|Unique restriction sites||Cloning arms of homology; swap elements|
