Highly efficient gene targeting in embryonic stem cells through homologous recombination with isogenic DNA constructs

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Abstract

A vast amount of data suggests that homologous recombination in mammalian cells is relatively rare as compared to random integration, imposing the need for sophisticated selection protocols to enrich for cells in which homologous recombination has occurred. We here show that one of the key factors in efficient homologous recombination is the use of isogenic DNA to prepare the targeting vectors. Homologous recombination at the retinoblastoma susceptibility gene (Rb) in embryonic stem cells derived from mouse strain 129 was 20-fold more efficient with a 129-derived targeting construct than with a BALB/c-derived construct. The two constructs were identical, except for a number of base sequence divergences between 129 and BALB/c DNA, including base-pair substitutions, small deletions/insertions, and a polymorphic CA repeat. Transfection with an isogenic DNA construct, containing 17 kilobases of homology, yielded a targeting frequency of 78% (of a total of 20,000 drug-resistant colonies), without the use of an enrichment protocol for homologous recombination. This result indicates that, also in mammalian cells, homologous recombination rather than random integration can be the predominant event.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
