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 two plasmids encoding for the gene specific zinc finger nuclease. 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 ZFN (zinc finger nuclease) provided in this kit targets the BLZF1 (basic leucine zipper nuclear factor 1) gene. BLZF1 might work as a transcription factor. It is involved in epigenetic regulation by binding to DNMT3L (DNA methyltransferase 3 like) and also participates in Wnt/β-catenin signaling. The BLZF1 gene is downregulated in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) cell line NB4. On the other hand, it is upregulated in presence of dengue virus infection. BLZF1 also interacts with GRASP55 (Golgi reassembly-stacking protein of 55 kDa) and the GTP form of rab2. It is involved in the secretory protein transport and maintenance of the Golgi structure. This gene is downregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma. This low expression is associated with poor overall survival.
