MET Gene Editing    

MET, also known as the N-methyl-N'-nitroso-human osteosarcoma transforming gene, is a proto-oncogene encoding the hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) receptor tyrosine kinase. MET is 125 Kb in length, and located on chromosome 7q21-31 with approximately 21 exons. c-MET is a heterodimer composed of a 50 kDa highly glycosylated alpha chain and a 145-kDa beta chain, and this heterodimer consists of a large extracellular domain, a transmembrane segment, and an intracellular tyrosine kinase domain. c-MET is the only known high-affinity receptor for HGF.

The specific combination of c-MET and HGF induces a conformational change in the c-MET receptor protein and its intracellular protein tyrosine kinase domain is activated by autophosphorylation, then phosphorylating and activating downstream MAPK, PI3K, SRC, and STAT signaling pathways. The waterfall phosphorylation reaction gradually amplified the signal. Ultimately, the c-MET pathway triggers a variety of cellular responses, including cell migration, mitosis, morphogenesis, proliferation, and blood vessels, and plays an important role in wound healing, post-injury reactions, and degenerative diseases such as kidney and pulmonary fibrosis.

In some NSCLCs, the c-MET pathway is considered to be the primary driving mechanism. c-MET signaling promotes hepatocyte proliferation and regeneration, indicating a potential tumor-promoting effect in HCC. c-MET dysregulation plays an important role in tumor formation, growth, maintenance, and invasion involving a variety of cancers, including lung cancer, colorectal cancer, liver cancer, and stomach cancer. Therefore, c-MET has become an attractive target for cancer treatment and drug development.

  • MET Gene Editing Cell Line Generation

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

➢ Blood Lineage Cells (RAW264.7, HMC1.2, K562, U937 etc.)
➢ Cancer Cell Lines (HEK293, HEK293T, Hela, MCF7, Neuro2a, HepG2, U87 etc.)
➢ Stem Cells (iPSC)
➢ Other Cell Lines (NIH3T3, MCF10, HEME, SW10 etc.)
