Cell Line
Parental dCas9-KRAB+ MDA-MB-231 Cells (Cat.# ZMDAMB231-CKRA, 106 cells) may be run in parallel with the user’s dCas9-repressor (dCas9-Rep) cells as a positive control for the assay.

Transduction Control Virus
Non-Targeting CRISPR Control pRSG16-U6-sg-UbiC-TagRFP-2A-Puro (virus) may be used to assess transduction efficiency of the target cells.

Cat.# Description Quantity
SGCTL-NT-pRSG16-V Non-Targeting CRISPR control pRSG16-U6-sg-UbiC-TagRFP-2A-Puro Vector (virus) 1 × 107 TU

Other than the specific reagents and instruments above, the protocol assumes the user has access to standard materials (e.g., polypropylene tubes, pipette tips), equipment (table top centrifuges, pipettes, scales), and common reagents (e.g., TE buffer, ethanol) and buffers used in a typical life science laboratory.
