Zebrafish Epitope Tag Service
The addition of an epitope tag at the endogenous locus enables you to quantify your protein without altering the level of gene expression.
Epitope tags in zebrafish are added using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology. You can choose from a variety of tags including FLAG, HA, HIS, TAP, or S-peptide.
Epitope Tagging Validation
CRISPR/Cas9 studies require quantification of impact on gene expression to validate a given knockout or knock-in. We now offer Epitope Tagging and CRISPR Knockout validation services in zebrafish.
Our epitope tagging knock-in and detection services through Western blot and/or immunostaining can help you reduce experimental variability and achieve your research goals.
Standard methodologies include immunostaining and Western blotting to determine impacts on protein levels and localization. These methods only work with specific and well validated antibodies, which are historically sparse in zebrafish.
One method zebrafish researchers have turned to is the introduction of a well-recognized epitope tag at the endogenous locus, allowing researchers to utilize a well validated, commercially available antibody.
Work with our expert genome engineers to choose the location and tag type for knock-in, and we will provide you with a customized service package including CRISPR/Cas9-mediated tagging as well as antibody detection and data curation services.
