General description

CompoZr Knockout ZFNs create targeted double strand breaks at a gene specific target locus. Through the cellular process of Non-Homologous End Joining, this double strand break can result in modification of the DNA sequence and therefore create a functional knockout of the targeted gene. To provide the best chance of creating a functional gene knockout, CompoZr Knockout ZFNs are targeted to the first 2/3 of the coding region for the gene of interest.

Physical form

CompoZr Knockout ZFNs are provided as 10 aliquots of mRNA encoding for the ZFNs along with plasmid DNA for both ZFN pairs. Also included in the kit are custom-designed primers, that allow for determination of the rate of mutation and for screening of individual clones that have the desired mutational event, and positive control DNA that has been modified using the CompoZr Knockout ZFN.

Biochem/physiol Actions

The zinc finger nuclease (ZFN) provided in this kit targets the gene encoding omentin (intelectin-1). It has no effect on basal glucose uptake but enhances insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in adipocytes. It increases protein kinase B (AKT) phosphorylation in the absence and presence of insulin. Omentin was suggested to play a role in the defense system against microorganisms by recognizing carbohydrate chains of pathogens and bacterial components containing galactofuranosyl residues. It has anti-inflammatory and insulin-sensitizing properties. The protein may be a biomarker of metabolic disorders. It has been shown to be over-expressed in human malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM).
