AAVHSC Vectors Encoding Zinc-Finger Nucleases Mediate Efficient Targeted Integration at the Human AAVS1 Locus in CD34+ Human Hematopoietic Stem Cells -- Abstract #55 Session: Gene Editing and Gene Regulation I Oral Presentation -- Wednesday, May 13, 2015
Site-directed mutagenesis of the conserved residues in H-N-H motif in Usp showed that H-N-H motif was important for DNase activity of Usp, indicating that Usp is a member of H-N-H nuclease superfamily.
They used the same nuclease to zero in on an undamaged section of the CCR5 receptor's DNA.
In this research, commercially available anti-oxidants will be employed to examine the inhibitory effects of methionine oxidation upon the stability of staphylococcal nuclease, a well-characterized model protein.
All of these genes are potential targets for our ZFP technology, and it is therefore particularly exciting for all of us to have already achieved significant milestones validating the applications of our nuclease technology in plant agriculture.

Precision's proprietary Directed Nuclease Editor(TM) (DNE) technology enables the production of genome editing enzymes that can insert, remove, modify, and regulate essentially any gene in mammalian or plant cells.
This seminal invention is at the origin of most current nuclease-based precise gene editing technologies involving Zinc Finger Nucleases, TALEN , Mega-TALE, BurrH Nucleases, as well as CRISPR, which all are chimeric endonucleases comprising a DNA binding sequence and a DNA cleavage domain with a recognition site of at least 12 base pairs (bp.
BNA-NC also possesses great stability due to its nuclease resistant properties.
The model protein staphylococcal nuclease is used to explore the inhibitive effects of various known antioxidants on protein structural stability after the methionine residues are exposed to the hydrogen peroxide.
