CRISPR/Cas9 DNA editing system is a prokaryotic immune system that becomes resistant to foreign genetics such as plasmids. CRISPR stands for Clustered Regularly-Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, which are prokaryotic DNA strands that have a short repetition base sequence. Cas9 is a nuclease enzyme that is used to cut into DNA strands that are associated with CRISPR type II. CRISPR/Cas9 system has several advantages when using this technology in the biological and biomedical sciences. It also has a few disadvantages that cause concerns when using this system in the medicine field. However, before all of this can be discussed, a depth of what CRISPR/Cas9 is and where it comes from and why is it important to the biology field.
There are many highly diverse Cas (CRISPR associated) proteins but only one that is mainly used, which is Cas9.1 Which Cas9 derivative is found on the gRNA that contains plasmid, which are associated with CRISPRs type II in the bacterial immune system. Cas9 is an important asset to a type II CRISPR system mechanism that is required for gene silencing. Cas9 protein engages in the processing of crRNA and is also responsible for eliminating the target DNA in the type II CRISPR system.1 Cas9 function as an RNA guide for the DNA endonuclease enzyme that is involved with CRISPR adaptive immune system.
CRISPRs is a DNA direct repeats found in many prokaryotic genomes, that have four CRISPR-associated protein families.12 Cas1 through Cas4 occur near a
