  • Publication number: 20240158778
    Abstract: The disclosure pertains to a method for isolating DNA fragments that contain a binding site for a guide-RNA of an RNA-guided endonuclease. The method comprises contacting the RNA-guided endonuclease with a target double-stranded DNA, thereby producing a single stranded DNA (ss-DNA) at the site to which the guide-RNA binds. The ssDNA is then reacted with kethoxal or an analog thereof modified by a chemoselective group, thereby adding the chemoselective group to any unpaired guanine based within the ssDNA. A first binding member of a specific binding pair is linked to the chemoselective group, for example, via a cycloaddition reaction. The DNA is fragmented and the DNA fragments that contain the binding sites for the guide-RNA are enriched using a support that comprises a second binding member of the specific binding pair. The method can be used to identify binding sites for a guide-RNA thereby identifying off-target binding sites.
