We screen natural products for antimicrobial, antiviral and anticancer activity, immunomodulatory effects, as inhibitors of cell adhesion and antioxidants. High resolution MRI-tomography with 7T magnet (PharmaScan 70/16US, Bruker) allows us to search in situ for compounds with anticancer, anti stroke and anti ischemia activity, inhibitors of angiogenesis and hepatoprotective substances.
We utilized paired synthetic crRNAs coupled with our synthetic tracrRNA in cells transduced with lentiviral Cas9 to perform a functional knockout on hsa-miR-221. This three-part system (crRNA, tracrRNA and Cas9) has demonstrated efficient gene editing when used with only one guide RNA, but the goal was to use two crRNAs to remove the entire stem-loop.READ MORE
