CRISPR-U™ Gene Knockout Cell Line Strategy

PDK4 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 PDK4 Knockout model in cell line by CRISPR-U™-mediated genome engineering.
Target gene info
Official symbol PDK4
Gene id 5166
Organism Homo sapiens
Official full symbol pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase 4
Gene type protein-coding
Summary This gene is a member of the PDK/BCKDK protein kinase family and encodes a mitochondrial protein with a histidine kinase domain. This protein is located in the matrix of the mitrochondria and inhibits the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex by phosphorylating one of its subunits, thereby contributing to the regulation of glucose metabolism. Expression of this gene is regulated by glucocorticoids, retinoic acid and insulin.
Genomic regions Chromosome 7
