Listeria protein provides a CRISPR 'kill switch'

The protein AcrVIA1 instantly stopped the CRISPR editing process

15-Jul-2020

A single protein derived from a common strain of bacteria found in the soil will offer scientists a more precise way to edit RNA. The protein, called AcrVIA1, can halt the CRISPR-Cas13 editing process, according to new research from Cornell, Rockefeller University and the Memorial Sloan Kettering ...
