  • Publication number: 20200248174
    Abstract: The invention provides a method of modifying a targeted site of a double stranded DNA, including a step of contacting a complex wherein a nucleic acid sequence-recognizing module that specifically binds to a target nucleotide sequence in a selected double stranded DNA and a nucleic acid base converting enzyme are linked, with the double stranded DNA, to convert one or more nucleotides in the targeted site to other one or more nucleotides or delete one or more nucleotides, or insert one or more nucleotides into the targeted site, without cleaving at least one strand of the double stranded DNA in the targeted site.

  • Publication number: 20190024098
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of modifying a targeted site of a double stranded DNA in a host cell, the method including introducing (a) a DNA encoding a crRNA containing a sequence complementary to a target strand of a target nucleotide sequence in the given double stranded DNA, and (b) a DNA encoding a protein group constituting Cascade and a nucleic acid base converting enzyme, in which the nucleic acid base converting enzyme is constituted in a form capable of forming a complex with any protein in the protein group, into the host cell to convert one or more nucleotides in the targeted site to other one or more nucleotides, or delete one or more nucleotides, or insert one or more nucleotides into said targeted site, without cleaving the double stranded DNA in the targeted site.

  • Publication number: 20170073670
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of modifying a targeted site of a double stranded DNA, including a step of contacting a complex wherein a nucleic acid sequence-recognizing module that specifically binds to a target nucleotide sequence in a selected double stranded DNA and a nucleic acid base converting enzyme are bonded, with the double stranded DNA, to convert one or more nucleotides in the targeted site to other one or more nucleotides or delete one or more nucleotides, or insert one or more nucleotides into the targeted site, without cleaving at least one chain of the double stranded DNA in the targeted site.
