Application

Nocodazole has been shown to enhance CRISPR genome editing efficiency. To see other small molecule CRISPR enhancers, visit sigma.com/CRISPR-enhancers.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Nocodazole is an antimitotic agent that disrupts microtubules by binding to β−tubulin and preventing formation of one of the two interchain disulfide linkages, thus inhibiting microtubule dynamics, disruption of mitotic spindle function, and fragmentation of the Golgi complex. Nocodazole arrests the cell cycle at G2/M phase and also prevents phosphorylation of the T cell antigen receptor and inhibits its activity. Nocodazole stimulates the intrinsic GTPase activity of tubulin and activates the JNK/SAPK signaling pathway and induces apoptosis in several normal and tumor cell lines. Nocodazole has been shown to enhance CRISPR homology-directed repair (HDR) efficiency and increase Cas9-mediated editing frequencies.
