How to PCR amplify template to prepare gRNA and Cas9 mRNA

Preparing gRNA template for IVT without cloning

Forward primer:


T7 promoter- Bold
Target site- N’s
crRNA- lower case letter (these sequences will bind to the plasmid)

Reverse primer :


Note: If you have 2Gs or 1G in your target sequence then you can leave out Gs from the T7 promoter. Having 2Gs at the end of the promoter will make transcription more efficient but  are not essential.
