General description

The Sigma lenti CRISPR Non-Targeting Control is a lentiviral plasmid vector, which includes a gRNA sequence that does not target known human, mouse and rat genes. This vector is useful as a negative control in experiments using Sigma CRISPR lentiviral clones. The Sigma lenti CRISPR non-targeting control uses a one-plasmid system consisting of a EF1-alpha-driven Cas9, a U6-driven guide RNA (non-targeting), with both Puromycin and GFP co-expressed with Cas9.

Ampicillin and puromycin antibiotic resistance genes provide selection in bacterial or mammalian cells, respectively. Also, self-inactivating replication incompetent viral particles can be produced in packaging cells (HEK293T) by co-transfection with compatible packaging plasmids (Product No. SHP001).

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/CRISPR-associated (Cas), originally found in bacteria and archaea, is employed by organisms to protect them from invading viruses and plasmids.


Functional Genomics/Screening/Target Validation

Features and Benefits

Serves as a non-targeting or negative experimental control (DNA format) for the CRISPR editing workflow using lenti CRISPRs. This allows you to examine the effect of transfection in your system with the Sigma lenti CRISPR/Cas9 plasmid.

Physical form

The Sigma CRISPR Lenti Non-Targeting Control Vector is provided as 1 μg of plasmid DNA in Tris-EDTA (TE).
