CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) and their CRISPR-associated (Cas) proteins constitute the adaptive immune system in bacteria (1-2). This system has been leveraged to create an exemplary genome editing tool with applications in both basic research and therapeutics development (3). Cas12 and Cas13 are recognized as ideal candidates for future management of diseases such as cancer (4). Several CRISPR-Cas12 based SARS-CoV-2 detection assays have been developed (5).

Accession Number:


Recombinant protein stored in 50mM sodium phosphate, pH 7.5, 300mM NaCl, 150mM imidazole, 1mM DTT and 10% glycerol.
