CRISPR-U™ Gene Knockout Cell Line Strategy

COL4A6 Gene Knockout Strategy

CRISPR-U™ technology (CRISPR based), developed by Ubigene, is more efficient than general CRISPR/Cas9 technology in double-strand breaking and homologous recombination. With CRISPR-U™, Ubigene has successfully edited over 3000 genes on more than 100 types of cell lines.
To create a Human COL4A6 Knockout model in cell line by CRISPR-U™-mediated genome engineering.
Target gene info
Official symbol COL4A6
Gene id 1288
Organism Homo sapiens
Official full symbol collagen type IV alpha 6 chain
Gene type protein-coding
Also known as CXDELq22.3, DELXq22.3, DFNX6
Summary This gene encodes one of the six subunits of type IV collagen, the major structural component of basement membranes. Like the other members of the type IV collagen gene family, this gene is organized in a head-to-head conformation with another type IV collagen gene, alpha 5 type IV collagen, so that the gene pair shares a common promoter. Deletions in the alpha 5 gene that extend into the alpha 6 gene result in diffuse leiomyomatosis accompanying the X-linked Alport syndrome caused by the deletion in the alpha 5 gene. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms.
Genomic regions Chromosome X
