CRISPR-U™ Gene Knockout Cell Line Strategy

ACE2 Gene Knockout M14 Cell 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 ACE2 Knockout model in M14 cell line by CRISPR-U™-mediated genome engineering.
Target gene info
Official symbol ACE2
Gene id 59272
Organism Homo sapiens
Official full symbol angiotensin I converting enzyme 2
Gene type protein-coding
Also known as ACEH
Summary The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the angiotensin-converting enzyme family of dipeptidyl carboxydipeptidases and has considerable homology to human angiotensin 1 converting enzyme. This secreted protein catalyzes the cleavage of angiotensin I into angiotensin 1-9, and angiotensin II into the vasodilator angiotensin 1-7. ACE2 is known to be expressed in various human organs, and its organ- and cell-specific expression suggests that it may play a role in the regulation of cardiovascular and renal function, as well as fertility. In addition, the encoded protein is a functional receptor for the spike glycoprotein of the human coronavirus HCoV-NL63 and the human severe acute respiratory syndrome coronaviruses, SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2, the causative agent of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19).
