CRISPR-Cas systems are powerful tools for mediating nucleic acids. Cas12a (also referred as Cpf1) nuclease, belonging to the Class 2, Type V CRISPR system, is a compact and efficient enzyme that cleaves the target double-stranded DNA into staggering ends. Cas12a processes its own mature crRNA. The PAM requirement for Cas12a is 5'-TTTN. Cas12a is able to indiscriminately cleave single-stranded DNA once sensing correct RNA-guided DNA binding. This property enables Cas12a as an efficient, rapid and sensitive DNA Detection tool besides engineered as a platform for Genome Editing.
LbCas12a from Lachnospiraceae bacterium (strain ND2006) is a programmable DNA endonuclease guided by a 42-44nt crRNA and can be applied in vitro DNA digestion and DNA detection.
LbCas12a-NLS is fused with both N- and C-terminal SV40 (simian virus 40) large T antigen nuclear localization signals (NLSs) for improved transport to the nucleus to heterologous expressed in mammalian and plant cells for cleavage of either exogenous or endogenous nucleic acids.
