Due to the implementation of the human genome project and the rapid development of molecular biology and bioinformatics, the concepts of "precision medicine", "personalized medicine" and "targeted therapy" have been widely recognized in the clinic, and the concept of Companion diagnostics is gradually known to the public. At present, many diseases have confirmed the existence of multiple driver genes, and each of them has corresponding solutions for targeted drugs. At the same time, many different types of Companion diagnostics kits have been developed in the market. In order to improve the accuracy of in vitro diagnostic kits, high-quality gDNAs extracted from point mutation cell lines are used as the raw material for quality control, which can not only simulate clinical samples, but also facilitate the development of diagnostic kits.

  • Why do you need high-quality gDNA?

    High quality gDNA is the first step in the development of diagnostic kits and the basis for the deployment of different mutation frequencies. When the extracted gDNA contains impurities such as protein, RNA and organic matter, it will affect the stability and uniformity of gDNA, especially the determination of its concentration, which will greatly hinder the later research and production.

  • Cell line derived gDNA is the trend of quality control in IVD industry

    Strict regulation of biomaterials makes it more difficult to obtain clinical samples for gene mutation diagnosis kit development. And there are many problems in using clinical samples as positive control for diagnosis kits, which makes gene mutation diagnosis kit manufacturers focus on cell lines carrying mutations.

    Problems in using clinical samples as positive control:
    Limited samples, non renewable
    High heterogeneity, poor stability
    Involving ethical issues and affected by laws and regulations
    Rare mutation sites are difficult to obtain
    Unable to accurately quantify, unclear copy number and allele number
    The positive controls derived from cell lines have the following advantages:
    Routine QC, better monitor the stability of the platform and manual operation, and eliminate background interference.
    Better verify the sensitivity and specificity, and provide QC standard for the platform and process system.
    Accurately define the threshold of each mutation.
    As a quality control for R&D, it provides a stable quality control standard for the R&D process.
  • CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing cell lines can simulate clinical samples of any diseases

    With the discovery of more and more essential mutation sites and the development of new targeted therapies, Common genetic mutations carried by cell lines are difficult to keep up with the current pace of innovation. In addition, for other indications, such as cardiovascular diseases, central nervous system diseases, inflammation, etc., it is difficult to find point mutations against these diseases from cell lines, because most of the cell lines are tumor cell lines, and few cell lines for these indications. What’s more, there are a large variety of cell lines, and it is not a low-cost and efficient way to undertake the process of purchase, culture, genome extraction for sequencing for every cell line. Moreover, it is very likely that the cell line carrying certain mutation cannot be found after verifying a large number of cell lines. Under this circumstance, using CRISPR/Cas9 technology to introduce disease mutation in cell line has become an important means to solve the problems and achieve simulation of clinical samples.

Drug metabolic enzymes and drug targets

The genetic variation and expression level of genes related to drug metabolism, transport and drug target can lead to individual differences in drug responsiveness by affecting the concentration and sensitivity of drugs in vivo. Pharmacogenomics has become an important tool for guiding clinical individualized drug use, assessing the risk of serious adverse drug reactions , guiding new drug development and evaluating new drugs. The detection of drug metabolic enzymes and drug targets can guide the clinical selection of appropriate drugs and dosages for specific patients, so as to achieve individualized medication, and thereby improve the effectiveness as well as the safety of drug treatment and prevent the occurrence of serious adverse drug reactions. At present, the US FDA and China's food and Drug Administration (CFDA) have approved a series of gene diagnostic kits for personalized drugs. In response to this trend, Ubigene have already launched services of drug metabolic enzymes and drug target cell line generation or gDNA customization.

Prenatal diagnosis

Prenatal screening and prenatal diagnosis are important means for eugenics. Through prenatal screening and prenatal diagnosis, we can assess the risk of fetal abnormalities and make clear diagnosis, and then choose appropriate measures to prevent the occurrence of serious birth defects. At present, the development of kits for prenatal screening and prenatal diagnosis is popular, greatly improving the universality of prenatal screening and prenatal diagnosis. In response to this trend, Ubigene launched point mutation cell lines or gDNA customized services related to two popular genetic diseases (epicophosis and thalassemia).

Case 1 Case 2

The c.G2149T point mutation of APP gene was carried out in iPSC by RNP method. After transfection, the recombination efficiency of the cell pool was detected. According to Sanger sequencing results, it can be seen that gRNA has a significant cleavage effect (Fig. 1). According to the analysis result by EZ-editorTM Genotyoe Analysis System (GAS), the homologous recombination genotype accounted for 14% (Fig. 2), which indicated that the efficiency was high, so single-cell clone isolation was next carried out.

p.R140W mutation of IDH2 gene was carried out in THP-1 cell line by AAV-Donor method. After transfection, the recombination efficiency of the cell pool was detected. According to Sanger sequencing results, it can be seen that gRNA has a significant cleavage effect (Fig. 3). According to the analysis result by EZ-editorTM Genotyoe Analysis System (GAS), the homologous recombination genotype accounted for 23% (Fig. 4), which indicated that the efficiency was high, so single-cell clone isolation was next carried out. In the single-cell clone validation process, two mutant homozygotes were obtained. (Fig. 5)
