Equipping CRISPR/Cas9 with an enzyme that controls translation of genetic information into protein

Arming CRISPR/Cas systems with an enzyme that also controls the translation of genetic information into protein CRISPR/Cas systems are known as promising "gene scissors" in the genome editing of plants, animals, and microorganisms by targeting specific regions in their DNA - and perhaps they can even be used to correct genetic defects. A team of scientists led by Juliane Behler and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Hess from the University of Freiburg have now identified an enzyme, a special pair of RNA scissors, which is involved in CRISPR/Cas systems and the correct regulation of gene expression - in other words, in reading genes and translating their information into proteins.
