Title: Saturating mutagenesis with assembled CRISPR-Cas9 ribonucleoprotein complexes      
dateReleased:
05-01-2016
description:
The CRISPR-Cas9 system enables efficient sequence-specific mutagenesis for creating germline mutants of model organisms. Key constraints in vivo remain the expression and delivery of active Cas9-guideRNA ribonucleoprotein complexes (RNPs) with minimal toxicity, variable mutagenesis efficiencies depending on targeting sequence, and high mutation mosaicism. Here, we established in vitro-assembled, fluorescent Cas9-sgRNA RNPs in stabilizing salt solution to achieve maximal mutagenesis efficiency in zebrafish embryos. Sequence analysis of targeted loci in individual embryos reveals highly efficient bi-allelic mutagenesis that reaches saturation at several tested gene loci. Such virtually complete mutagenesis reveals preliminary loss-of-function phenotypes for candidate genes in somatic mutant embryos for subsequent generation of stable germline mutants. We further show efficient targeting of functional non-coding elements in gene-regulatory regions using saturating mutagenesis towards uncovering functional control elements in transgenic reporters and endogenous genes. Our results suggest that in vitro assembled, fluorescent Cas9-sgRNA RNPs provide a rapid reverse-genetics tool for direct and scalable loss-of-function studies beyond zebrafish applications.
