SaCas9 Expression Systems: AAVpro CRISPR/SaCas9

  • Shorter SaCas9 nuclease gene
  • Both SaCas9 and sgRNA fit into one AAV vector
  • Easy, efficient gene editing in a wide variety of mammalian cells

Shorter SaCas9 allows one-construct gene editing

The AAVpro CRISPR/SaCas9 Systems are used for the preparation of an adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector to express the components necessary for CRISPR/SaCas9-mediated genome editing (sgRNA and SaCas9 nuclease) in mammalian cells.

The SaCas9 gene is derived from Staphylococcus aureus and  has a similar editing efficacy to the commonly used Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 (SpCas9) but is about 1 kb shorter. This makes it is possible to fit both SaCas9 and the sgRNA sequences into a single vector for easier and more efficient genome editing in a wide variety of mammalian cells.


SaCas9 Vector Kit formats

The AAVpro CRISPR/SaCas9 Helper Free System (AAV2) (Cat. No. CL 632619) is a complete system, containing reagents to construct custom-designed sgRNA expression plasmids and prepare AAV particles.

The AAVpro CRISPR/SaCas9 Vector System (Cat. No CL 632618) contains the same components except for the packaging system.
