Delivery of CRISPR-Cas9 into Mouse Zygotes by Electroporation.
Methods Mol Biol 2019; 1874:179-190
The CRISPR-Cas9 system in bacteria and archaea has recently been exploited for genome editing in various model organisms, including the mice. In this scheme, components of the CRISPR-Cas9 system are delivered into the mouse zygote and mutant mice carrying genetic modifications derived. Although microinjection has been the technology of choice, electroporation has also emerged and been proven to be effective delivering CRISPR-Cas9 reagents into the mouse zygote. Here, we describe the experimental protocol employing electroporation to deliver CRISPR-Cas9 reagents into mouse embryos and derive gene-edited mutant mice.
