|Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets||Msh3|
|Parental Line||SVG-A immortalized human astrocytes|
|Synonyms||DNA mismatch repair protein Msh3, hMSH3, Divergent upstream protein, DUP, Mismatch repair protein 1, MRP1|
|Disease Keywords||Neurodegenerative disease such as Huntington’s|
The MSH3 gene encodes a DNA mismatch repair protein important in certain cancer types and in certain neurodegenerative diseases.
Exon 2 of the MSH3 gene was targeted by CRISPR/Cas9. The resulting Msh3-/- cell line encodes a 3 amino acid deletion in Msh3 that results in 98% loss of Msh3 protein, as judged by western blots with two different antibodies.
While ~98% of Msh3 protein is lost in these cells, the abundance of the related proteins Msh2 and Msh6 appear unaffected. This is relevant to DNA mismatch repair.
