Brief Description

UC researchers have discovered a novel use of proteins denoted CasLamda/Cas12L

within the Type V CRISPR Cas superfamily distantly related to CasX, CasY and other published type V sequences.  These CasLamda/Cas12L proteins utilize a guide RNA to perform RNA-directed cleavage of DNA.  The researchers have developed compounds and structures for use in in editing plant cells.

Suggested uses

  • Targeted genome editing of plant cells
  • Targeting of proteins bound to CasLamda/Cas12L to a specific locus of a genome
