Combines all necessary components into a single reagent for high-confidence gene knockout
Edit-R All-in-one Lentiviral sgRNAs express a guide RNA for targeting the editing machinery, as well as the Cas9 nuclease itself within the same lentiviral vector; reducing the need to perform sequential transductions. A puromycin resistance marker is also included in the vector which allows for rapid selection of cells that integrated the sgRNA.
Each Edit-R All-in-one Lentiviral sgRNA is specific to the gene or genomic site of interest. Generating knockouts in difficult-to-transfect cells or following up hits from a pooled lentiviral sgRNA library screen are key applications of this guide format.
While CRISPR-Cas9 is a highly effective tool for interrogating gene function, not all guide RNAs are effective in attaining functional protein knockout. To address this problem, Horizon developed an algorithm that is trained to select guides that give the highest likelihood of generating a functional gene knockout, not just creating an insertion or deletion.

Gene knockout workflow using the Edit-R All-in-one Lentiviral sgRNA system
Comparison of Edit-R™ two-vector and all-in-one system
For the two-vector system, cells were previously transduced with a constitutive hEF1α- or mCMV-Cas9 expression lentiviral particles at an MOI of 0.3, and selected with 10 µg/mL blasticidin for 10 days, followed by transduction with Non-targeting control (NTC), DNMT3B- or PPIB-sgRNA lentiviral particles at an MOI of 0.3. For the all-in-one system, wild-type cells were transduced with the all-in-one were selected with 2 µg/mL puromycin for 3 days. For the all-in-one system, wild-type cells were transduced with the NTC, DNMT3B or PPIB all-in-one lentiviral particles that also expresses a constitutive hEF1α- or mCMV-Cas9 nuclease at an MOI of 0.3. All transduced cells were selected with 2 µg/mL puromycin for 3 days. The cells were then lysed and analyzed for indels using a DNA mismatch detection assay with T7EI.
Schematic diagram of the Edit-R All-in-one Lentiviral sgRNA vector
In the Edit-R All-in-one Lentiviral sgRNA vector backbone, the gene-specific guide RNA is expressed under the control of a human U6 promoter, while expression of the Cas9 and puromycin resistance marker (PuroR) is driven from either the human EF1α or the mouse CMV promoter. The plasmid contains the AmpR resistance marker for growth and selection in E. coli.

The Edit-R Predesigned Guide RNA Guarantee
We guarantee that EVERY predesigned guide RNAs will provide successful editing at the target site when delivered as described in the Edit-R Technical Manuals.
The Edit-R guide RNA guarantee is valid when used with any wild type S. pyogenes Cas9 nuclease, including mRNA, expression plasmid, protein, or stable Cas9 expression, and Edit-R crRNAs must be used with Edit-R tracrRNA for the guarantee to apply.
Analysis of editing of the treated cell population must be shown using a T7EI or Surveyor mismatch detection assay. If successful editing is not observed for a predesigned Edit-R guide RNA while an appropriate side-by-side Edit-R positive control is successful, a one-time replacement of a different predesigned Edit-R guide RNA of the same format and quantity will be provided at no cost.
A replacement will only be approved upon discussion with our Technical Support team.
Successful editing at the DNA level does not always lead to functional gene knockout; it is recommended to test multiple guide RNAs to determine the most effective guide RNA for knockout of your target gene.
This guarantee does not extend to any accompanying experimental costs, does not apply to guide RNAs ordered via the CRISPR Design Tool, and will not be extended to the replacement guide RNA.
