C. elegans Mutation Packages

C. elegans Point Mutation Service


The Point Mutation service uses CRISPR/Cas9 to introduce a small number of nucleotide changes at a target site. With this service you can:

  • study a disease-causing mutation
  • humanize a critical amino acid
  • explore the binding site of an enzyme
  • introduce phosphomimetics
  • mutate isoform start sites or make any specific mutation of interest.

See how researchers used this service to create four point mutations in the RNase domain of the rege-1 gene, leading to the discovery of the role of rege-1 in regulating fat metabolism (PMID:27746047 ).
