CRISPR-U™ Gene Knockout Cell Line Strategy

LGR5 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 LGR5 Knockout model in cell line by CRISPR-U™-mediated genome engineering.
Target gene info
Official symbol LGR5
Gene id 8549
Organism Homo sapiens
Official full symbol leucine rich repeat containing G protein-coupled receptor 5
Gene type protein-coding
Also known as FEX, GPR49, GPR67, GRP49, HG38
Summary The protein encoded by this gene is a leucine-rich repeat-containing receptor (LGR) and member of the G protein-coupled, 7-transmembrane receptor (GPCR) superfamily. The encoded protein is a receptor for R-spondins and is involved in the canonical Wnt signaling pathway. This protein plays a role in the formation and maintenance of adult intestinal stem cells during postembryonic development. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
Genomic regions Chromosome 12
