Insights into the mechanism of Cas12a dynamics using C-Trap®

A recent publication by Losito et al. from the lab of Prof. David Rueda (Imperial College London), reveals new information on the kinetics and mechanism of Cas12a-DNA interaction. Using the C-Trap® the authors could observe in real-time Cas12a binding, target-search, and DNA cleavage under different conditions and hence expand the…
