Cellecta's Lentiviral Packaging Mix Outperforms Competitors'!

Recently, one of our customers compared our lentiviral packaging mix with packaging mixes from two competitors. The same lentiviral vector that expresses firefly luciferase was used in all three packaging protocols. Each lentivector was packaged according to the manufacturer's instructions in 293T cells. Collected virus was used fresh to transduce 293T cells for 48 hr. Firefly luciferase activity was assayed using a standard protocol and compared to untransduced cells.

Insertion of 10X Genomics' Capture Sequences Does Not Affect HEAT-Tracr sgRNA Efficacy

Perturb-Seq or CROP-Seq screens make use of single-cell RNA-Sequencing in conjunction with a pooled CRISPR library to identify transcriptional changes and, by implication, activation or deactivation of cellular pathways related to phenotypic changes produced by specific sgRNA-mediated gene knockouts.

Core Population of Cancer Stem Cells Mediates Therapeutic Resistance in Tumors

Researchers at MD Anderson Cancer Center recently used a Cellecta CloneTracker Barcode Library to label patient-derived xenograft (PDX) cells and establish a stable population of aggressive tumorigenic cells with a specific set of barcodes. With this population of barcoded tumorigenic clones, the investigators...
