HEK293 GRASP55 and GRASP65 double knockout cell line
- Name Yanzhuang Wang
- Institute University of Michigan
Tool name: HEK293 GRASP55 and GRASP65 double knockout cell line
Tool type: Cell Lines
Tool sub-type: Continuous
Parental cell line: HEK293 cell line
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).
