DKK1 Gene Editing    

DKK1 (dickkopf-related protein 1) is a member of the dickkopf family. This secreted protein family shares a similar conserved cysteine domain and inhibits the Wnt/β-catenin pathway by causing proteasome β-catenin degradation, inducing apoptosis and preventing cell proliferation. DKK1 is a discovered secretory glycoprotein that induces the head formation and is an endogenous inhibitor of the canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway. It has been found to be involved in many pathophysiological processes in the body. Abnormal expression of DKK1 not only alters the expression of related proteins and genes in the canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway but also alters the expression of related proteins and genes in other signaling pathways.

Numerous studies have shown that it plays an important role in embryonic development, nerve regeneration, and synapse formation. Therefore, its role in neuropsychiatric disorders, such as neurodevelopmental disorders, cognitive disorders, and mood disorders, has attracted increasing attention. At present, the role of DKK1 in Alzheimer's disease (AD) is one of the research hotspots.

Elevated levels of DKK1 in plasma and peripheral blood in patients with multiple myeloma are associated with osteolytic lesions. Due to the role of DKK1 in inflammation-induced bone loss, DKK1 is currently being studied as a target for medical and dental treatment strategies.

In addition, recent studies have shown that DKK1 may be an ideal target for cancer immunotherapy. Interestingly, the DKK1-CKAP4-PI3K/AKT signaling pathway also plays a role in the proliferation of pancreatic cancer cells. It may be useful to further study the mechanism of DKK1 and use it alone as a biomarker or in combination with other biomarkers.

  • DKK1 Gene Editing Cell Line Generation

With deep gene editing knowledge and extensive experience in experimental operation and data processing, we have successfully implemented DKK1 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 DKK1 gene editing service from strategy design to final stable cells. Our DKK1 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 DKK1 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.
