CDK6 Gene Editing    

CDK6 (cyclin-dependent protein 6) is a member of the cyclin-dependent kinase family, a serine/threonine protein kinase family involved in cell cycle, transcription, and other biological processes such as translation, neurogenesis, and apoptosis. CDK6 is a catalytic subunit of the CDK6-cyclin D complex that is involved in the G1 to S cell cycle progression and negatively regulates cell differentiation. Its activity first appeared in the mid-G1 phase to phosphorylate the tumor suppressor protein retinoblastoma (Rb) (Figure 1), thereby regulating its activity. In addition, the CDK4/6 cyclin D complex phosphorylates transcription factor, such as FOXM1. CDK6 has also been shown to phosphorylate the cancer factor kappa-B (NF-kB). CDK6 is required for certain tumor cells to proliferate, and the expression of CDK6 is up-regulated in several types of cancer. Therefore, CDK6 is expected to be a potential target for anticancer treatment.

Despite the high level of homology between CDK4 and CDK6 (~70%), there are more and more lists of different functions reported for CDK6, including the ability to regulate specific differentiated cell type, like murine erythroleukemia, primary mouse astrocytes, osteoblasts and osteoclasts, thymic cells, neurons, cardiac cells and hematopoietic cells. Due to its unique function of cell-type specificity and development, CDK6 is a pharmacological target for various cancer types and it is necessary to find a CDK6 inhibitor with high selectivity.

  • CDK6 Gene Editing Cell Line Generation

Our professional scientists have successfully implemented CDK6 CRISPR/Cas9 gene edited in both easy-to-transfect cell lines and hard-to-transfect cells. To support your projects, we will offer you full-length custom CDK6 gene editing service from strategy design to final stable cells. Our CDK6 gene editing cell line generation services include:

➢ gRNA design and synthesis
➢ Transfect the cell lines you're interested
➢ Select the high expression cells and sort monoclonal cell
➢ Validate the knockout/knockin/point mutation of CDK6 by PCR and sequencing
➢ Produce cryogenic preserved vials of stable cells and a final report

Typically, we develop CRISPR-mediated gene editing cell lines including HEK239T, Hela, HepG2, U87, but we can use other cell lines according to your requirements.

  • Alternative cell lines
