Gene Disruption Using Zinc Finger Nuclease Technology
Zinc finger nucleases are reagents that induce DNA double-strand breaks at specific sites that can be repaired by nonhomologous end joining, inducing alterations in the genome. This strategy has enabled highly efficient gene disruption in numerous cell types and model organisms opening a door for new therapeutic applications. Here, we describe the disruption of CD147/basigin by this technique in a human cancer cell line.
