Tool Details

  • Tool name: HEK293 GRASP65 knockout cell line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: HEK293 cell line
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Kidney
  • Description: Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/Cas9 technology was used to knock out Golgi reassembly stacking protein of 65 kDa (GRASP65) and/or Golgi reassembly stacking protein of 55 kDa (GRASP55) in HeLa and HEK293 cells. By knocking out GRASPs it was demonstrated that these proteins are essential for Golgi stacking structure formation and accurate posttranslational modifications function in the Golgi. The GRASP knock out cell lines can be used to study the role of GRASPs in Golgi-related biological processes and diseases in which the Golgi is defective (e.g. Alzheimers disease, congenital disorders of glycosylation, foot-and-mouth disease, reoxygenation injury and cancer).
