Efficient CRISPR gene editing workflows necessitate the use of an accurate screening protocol in order to minimize the cost of downstream characterization procedures. Researchers are able to easily visualize results using agarose gel electrophoresis, shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1. CRISPR event detection example. Control Fragments were amplified using the following ratios and analyzed with or without digestion by T7 Endonuclease. Lanes 2 and 3 WT/-2 bp (9.5/0.5 m/m), Lanes 4 and 5 WT/ -2 bp/-2 bp (50/50 m/m), Lanes 6 and 7 WT/-2 bp/+2 bp (50/25/25 m/m/m).

Percent cleaved can be estimated using image processing software such as ImageJ to obtain relative quantification of amplicons and cleavage products. Once relative quantification values are obtained, percent cleaved can be estimated using the following equation:

Figure 2

AATI has simplified determination of percent cleaved with a formula that uses values directly from ImageJ.

Further information about a positive clone, including the zygosity and the exact nature of the editing event, must be determined by NGS or Sanger Sequencing.
