  • The start codon CUG of PTEN-long was mutated to AUG and PTENlong expression is significantly increased. gRNA1 and gRNA2 have similar efficiency in driving PTEN-long expression (lanes 1 and 2). Combined gRNA1 and gRNA2 (lane 3) did not enhance PTEN-long expression compared to lane 1 and 2. The ssODN is required for mutation of CTG to ATG through HDR and without which PTEN-long is not expressed (lane 4). PTEN-long cDNA cloned into pcDNA3.1 with CTG to ATG mutation was highly expressed in transfected HEK293T cells (lane 5). Lane 6 is protein ladder. Lanes 7–10 indicate that the combination of gRNA and ssODN is required to facilitate HDR occurrence and double-strand DNA break.

  • Knock-in efficiencies of mCherry knock-in at Actb locus by four strategies in mouse ES cells (A) were measured by FACS and compared with the group treated with NHEJ inhibitor (Scr7 or Nu7026), HR inhibitor (caffeine) or both. Results were presented as mean ± SD. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001, unpaired Student’s t-test

Biological Activity

Description SCR7 is a specific DNA Ligase IV inhibitor, which blocks nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ). It increases the efficiency of HDR-mediated genome editing up to 19-fold using CRISPR/Cas9 in mammalian cells and mouse embryos.
DNA Ligase IV [1]
In vitro

SCR7 effectively inhibits the formation of multimers at 200 μM and above. SCR7 successfully inhibits cell proliferation of MCF7, A549, HeLa, T47D, A2780, HT1080, and Nalm6 with IC50 of 40, 34, 44, 8.5, 120, 10, and 50 μM, respectively.[1] SCR7 suppresses the NHEJ repair of CRISPR-Cas9-induced DSBs.[2]SCR7 increases the efficiency of HDR-mediated genome editing up to 19-fold using CRISPR/Cas9 in mammalian cells and mouse embryos[3].

In vivo SCR7 treatment (10 mg/kg, i.m.) significantly reduces breast adenocarcinoma-induced tumor, and exhibits 4-fold increase in lifespan compared with control group. However, in Swiss albino mice with Dalton’s lymphoma tumor model, SCR7 (20 mg/kg, i.p.) exhibits neither tumor regression nor increase in lifespan. In BALB/c mice, SCR7 (20 mg/kg, i.p.) significantly enhances the cytotoxic effects of radiation, etoposide and 3-Aminobenzamide on tumor derived from Dalton’s lymphoma (DLA) cells.[1]

Complementation of SCR7 Inhibition with Purified Ligase IV:

Complementation experiment is carried out by adding increasing concentrations of purified Ligase IV/XRCC4 complex (30, 60, and 120 fmol) along with the oligomeric DNA substrates (5’ compatible and 5’-5’ noncompatible ends) to the SCR7-treatedextracts. Reactions are incubated for 2 h at 25℃. The reaction products are then resolved on 8% denaturing PAGE. The gel is dried and exposed and the signal is detected with a PhosphorImager and analyzed with Multi Gauge (V3.0) software.
Cell Research:

  • Cell lines: MCF7, CEM, HeLa, A549, HT1080, A2780, T47D, Nalm6, N114 and K562 cells
  • Concentrations: 250 μM
  • Incubation Time: 48 h
  • Method:

    Cell proliferation of cancer cells are determined by MTT and trypan blue assays. Briefly, MCF7, CEM, HeLa, A549, HT1080, A2780, T47D, Nalm6, N114 and K562 cells are grown in presence of SCR7 (10, 50, 100, and 250 μM) for 24 or 48 h, and subjected to MTT or trypan blue assays. Each experiment is repeated a minimum of three independent times.

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:

Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Question 1:

    What should I do if I got precipitate out of solution after a freeze thaw and cannot re-suspend it?

  • Answer:

    Some compounds will precipitate out of solution after freeze/thaw, especially at very high concentration. You can warm it up to 45 degree and sonicate it to help it dissolve, of course, adding more DMSO will help too.
