Generation of a DKK1 homozygous knockout human embryonic stem cell line WAe001-A-21 using CRISPR/Cas9


Dickkopf1 (DKK1) is a secreted inhibitor for the Wnt signalling, which is involved in cell proliferation, tissue regeneration and embryonic development. Using CRISPR/Cas9 editing, we established a homozygous mutant DKK1 human embryonic stem cell line (WAe001-A-21). It has a 41 bp deletion in exon 2 of DKK1, leading to its coding frame shift. The WAe001-A-21 cell line maintains a normal karyotype, pluripotency markers, typical stem cell morphology and the ability to differentiate into three germ layers. Copyright © 2021 The Authors.
