Generation of a RGS18 gene knockout cell line from a human embryonic stem cell line by CRISPR/Cas9

Summary

RGS18 is a member of the RGS (Regulators of G-protein signaling) protein family, involved in megakaryopoiesis, megakaryocyte differentiation and chemotaxis. Here, we created a RGS18 knockout cell line from a human embryonic stem cell line by CRISPR/Cas9 mediated gene targeting, to further understand roles of RGS18 in these processes. The cell line maintains stem cell morphology and normal karyotype, and retains expression of pluripotent marker genes and differentiation potential in vivo. The RGS18-/- cell line will facilitate investigation of the role of RGS18 during multiple cellular processes in human pluripotent stem cell modeled hematopoiesis. Copyright © 2020 The Authors.
