Cas-CLOVER Enhances Agriculture

Gene editing tools such as Cas-CLOVER have the potential to optimize food production by making precise, intentional and beneficial changes in the genetic material of plants and animals used in food production. Often times, these edits mimic changes that might occur naturally or by means of traditional breeding.

Gene editing technology allows farmers to keep up with the ever increasing demands for more and better food, while using less water, land, nutrients and other resources.

Validated In Plants

Recently, we validated the activity of Cas-CLOVER in plants by targeted inactivation of the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase 6 (RDR6) gene in tobacco. We achieved an efficiency of at least 18% for our first target which is significant for tobacco. Edits such as the RDR6 gene may be valuable as they can result in more robust recombinant protein production for rapid and scalable vaccine and medicine manufacturing, as shown in previous publications. In fact, the vaccine for the last Ebola outbreak was produced in transgenic tobacco; showing the value of genetic editing tools in agriculture.

What’s Unique About The Cas-CLOVER Gene Editing System?

As opposed to the use of a single guide RNA (gRNA) for sequence-specific gene editing, the Cas-CLOVER system utilizes a dual gRNA in addition to the Clo51 nuclease activity that requires dimerization of subunits associated with each guide RNA.

This allows for more stringent DNA cleavage. Using two gRNA makes the Cas-CLOVER gene editing system highly restricted and only functional when the paired gRNAs coexist.

Freedom To Operate Is Clear With Cas-CLOVER

The lack of clear commercial freedom to operate and use of intellectual property (IP) has limited the commercial use of current gene editing tools. It is our mission to make technology easily accessible to all scientists and researchers within the pharmaceutical bioprocessing, industrial biotechnology, and agriculture industries.

Due to the distinct science involved, Cas-CLOVER is covered under a set of patents separate from other technologies. Cas-CLOVER is exclusively licensed and sub-licensable by Demeetra.

Scientists Trust Our Gene Editing Technology

Demeetra AgBio

We are very happy with the efficiency of the targeted mutations we are getting with Cas-CLOVER in mammalian cells. It is impressive that although Cas-CLOVER requires dimerization it still has very high efficiency similar to CRISPR/Cas9. The one aspect of Cas-CLOVER that stood out for us was its ease of use. We have been working with CRISPR/Cas9 for many year now and Cas-CLOVER just fit in very nicely with our existing workflow for gene-editing with Cas9 or Cas9 nickase.
