CRISPR-U™ Gene Knockout Cell Line Strategy

SOD2 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 SOD2 Knockout model in cell line by CRISPR-U™-mediated genome engineering.
Target gene info
Official symbol SOD2
Gene id 6648
Organism Homo sapiens
Official full symbol superoxide dismutase 2
Gene type protein-coding
Also known as GClnc1, IPO-B, IPOB, MNSOD, MVCD6, Mn-SOD
Summary This gene is a member of the iron/manganese superoxide dismutase family. It encodes a mitochondrial protein that forms a homotetramer and binds one manganese ion per subunit. This protein binds to the superoxide byproducts of oxidative phosphorylation and converts them to hydrogen peroxide and diatomic oxygen. Mutations in this gene have been associated with idiopathic cardiomyopathy (IDC), premature aging, sporadic motor neuron disease, and cancer. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. A related pseudogene has been identified on chromosome 1.
Genomic regions Chromosome 6
