CRISPR-U™ Gene Knockout Cell Line Strategy

MX2 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 MX2 Knockout model in cell line by CRISPR-U™-mediated genome engineering.
Target gene info
Official symbol MX2
Gene id 4600
Organism Homo sapiens
Official full symbol MX dynamin like GTPase 2
Gene type protein-coding
Also known as MXB
Summary The protein encoded by this gene has a nuclear and a cytoplasmic form and is a member of both the dynamin family and the family of large GTPases. The nuclear form is localized in a granular pattern in the heterochromatin region beneath the nuclear envelope. A nuclear localization signal (NLS) is present at the amino terminal end of the nuclear form but is lacking in the cytoplasmic form due to use of an alternate translation start codon. This protein is upregulated by interferon-alpha but does not contain the antiviral activity of a similar myxovirus resistance protein 1.
Genomic regions Chromosome 21
