CRISPR-U™ Gene Knockout Cell Line Strategy

ITGA6 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 ITGA6 Knockout model in cell line by CRISPR-U™-mediated genome engineering.
Target gene info
Official symbol ITGA6
Gene id 3655
Organism Homo sapiens
Official full symbol integrin subunit alpha 6
Gene type protein-coding
Also known as CD49f, ITGA6B, VLA-6
Summary The gene encodes a member of the integrin alpha chain family of proteins. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain that function in cell surface adhesion and signaling. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate light and heavy chains that comprise the alpha 6 subunit. This subunit may associate with a beta 1 or beta 4 subunit to form an integrin that interacts with extracellular matrix proteins including members of the laminin family. The alpha 6 beta 4 integrin may promote tumorigenesis, while the alpha 6 beta 1 integrin may negatively regulate erbB2/HER2 signaling. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
Genomic regions Chromosome 2
