TALEN utilization in rice genome modifications.
Transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs), the newly developed and powerful genetic tools for precise genome editing, are fusion proteins of TAL effectors as DNA binding domains and the cleavage domain of FokI endonuclease. As a pair,

TALEN-mediated genome engineering to generate targeted mice.
Genetic mouse models are critical for biomedical research to understand gene function and pathophysiology. In the last years, the generation of genetic mouse models has been revolutionized by the emergence of transcription activator-like effector nuc

Cas9.
The ability to selectively alter genomic DNA sequences in vivo is a powerful tool for basic and applied research. The CRISPR/Cas9 system precisely mutates DNA sequences in a number of organisms. Here, the CRISPR/Cas9 system is shown to be effective i

TALEN-mediated genome-editing approaches in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha yield high efficiencies for targeted mutagenesis.
The liverwort Marchantia polymorpha occupies a crucial position in land plant evolution and provides the opportunity to investigate adaptations to a terrestrial plant life style. Marchantia reverse genetic analyses have thus far been conducted by emp

Creation of fragrant rice by targeted knockout of the OsBADH2 gene using TALEN technology.
Fragrant rice is favoured worldwide because of its agreeable scent. The presence of a defective badh2 allele encoding betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase (BADH2) results in the synthesis of 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline (2AP), which is a major fragrance compound.

TALEN-mediated genome editing: prospects and perspectives.
Genome editing is the practice of making predetermined and precise changes to a genome by controlling the location of DNA DSBs (double-strand breaks) and manipulating the cell's repair mechanisms. This technology results from harnessing natural proce

Cas9-Mediated Targeted Mutagenesis.
The eastern North American monarch butterfly, Danaus plexippus, is an emerging model system to study the neural, molecular, and genetic basis of animal long-distance migration and animal clockwork mechanisms. While genomic studies have provided new i

Bacterial delivery of TALEN proteins for human genome editing.
Transcription Activator-Like Effector Nucleases (TALENs) are a novel class of sequence-specific nucleases that have recently gained prominence for its ease of production and high efficiency in genome editing. A TALEN pair recognizes specific DNA sequ

Cas Genome Editing Systems: Tools of Discovery.
Precise studies of plant, animal and human genomes enable remarkable opportunities of obtained data application in biotechnology and medicine. However, knowing nucleotide sequences isn't enough for understanding of particular genomic elements functio

TALEN-mediated Drosophila genome editing: protocols and applications.
TALEs (transcription activator-like effectors) are a family of natural transcriptional activators originally isolated from the plant pathogen of Xanthomonas spp. The DNA binding motif of TALEs can be re-designed in such way that they bind specific DN
