  1. Use website, put the interested gene name to get the higher score sgRNA, select the species, cas 9 taye( wt).   Choose the top three target sequences on the 5’ end, and the top three for the 3’

Such as axin 1, click √   to  select “Search only in the first common exon”.

    1. Design the primers

    To clone the guide sequence into the sgRNA scaffold, synthesize two oligos of the form:

                         5’ – CACCGNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN     – 3’

                         3’ –     CNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNCAAA – 5’

    To clone in your target sequence, synthesize two partially complementary oligos with 4nt overhangs compatible for cloning into the vector. “N” and “n” represent complementary base pairs.  PAY CAREFUL ATTENTION TO THE 5′ > 3′ ORIENTATIONS

                              5’ –CACCGNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN –3’      5’ –AAACnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnC -3’

                  When annealed oligos form double stranded DNA with overhangs for cloning into BbsI site in px330.



                 Forward primer:    5’ –CACCGNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN –3’

                    Reverse primer:     5’ –AAACnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnC -3’

      Note: 1) make sure The PAM site is not included in the sgRNA sequence. 

    2) Add CACCG to forward oligo(if there is G in the 5’ site, just add CACC).

    3) Design the oligo 2, Get reverse complementary sequence of forward oligo, then add aaac to 5’, c to 3’ site.

    Design note for expressing sgRNA in cells from the U6 promoter in pX330: Please note that for the pX330 cloning backbone, the example guide sequence one base ‘G’ followed by 19 Ns. Because it needs U6 promoter to have a ‘G’ base at the transcription start site. Hence, we recommend finding a 20bp genome target starting with the base ‘G’. If you have to use other bases at the starting position of your genome target, you could add an additional ‘G’ to the front of your target. If you are going to use the construct simply to make RNA for microinjection into mouse embryos, then you can ignore this issue.


    Oligo annealing and cloning into backbone vectors:

    1. PX330载体酶切体系配制:

    X µl pX330   (1- 2 µg)

    2 µl 10X NEBuffer 2.1

    1 µl BbsI (NEB) Use more if cutting more DNA

    H2O to final Volume of 20 µl

    Incubate the digestion reaction at 37oC for at least 1hr.

    Heats inactivate (65°C for 20 min) and columns purify linearized plasmid. 

    1. 胶回收,线性化载体回收.
    2. oligos退火:

           1 ul  oligo 1 (100μM)

           1 ul  oligo 2 (100μM)

                1 ul       10X T4 Ligation Buffer (NEB)

           6.5 ul      ddH2O

           0.5 ul      T4 PNK (NEB)             

           10 ul total


           37oC 30 min

                95oC        5 min and then ramp down to 25oC at 5oC/min

    • after anneal the oligo, the dilution is around 200, and check the concentration with nano drop, the

    concentration is around 50-100 ng/ul.

    1. Oligo和载体连接反应and incubate at room temperature for 10 min:

           X ul BbsI digested plasmid

                  from step 2 (50ng)

           1 ul  phosphorylated and annealed

                  oligo duplex from step 3 (1:150–1:200 dilution)

           5 ul  2X Quickligation Buffer (NEB)

           X ul ddH2O                         

           10 ul subtotal

           1 ul  Quick Ligase (NEB)      

           11 ul total


    X µl pX330 BbsI digested vector (50ng)

    2 µl annealed oligo duplex from step 1 (1:250 dilution)

    2 µl 10x DNA ligase buffer (make sure fresh, else ATP or DTT may be shot)

    1 µl T4 ligase

    Y µl H2O to 20 µl final volume

    1.  2 ul连接产物转化感受态。
    2. 挑选克隆,使用U6测序引物测序。
