Hello Bio launches small molecules for genome editing

17 Mar 2017

Small molecules for genome editingHello Bio announced today the launch of a range of small molecules that can be used for genome editing –  including 4-Hydroxytamoxifen, azidothymidine and RS-1. These are valuable tools that enable scientists to make targeted modifications to the genome – modifications that include the deletion, insertion or other alterations of DNA sequences of cells or organisms.

Genome editing techniques include the Cre-LoxP / CreER and CRISPR/Cas9 systems. Small molecule compounds play a crucial role in these techniques and can enhance the overall efficiency and targeting precision of CRISPR/Cas-9-mediated genome editing for example. 

We are proud to be at the forefront of science by manufacturing small molecules such as 4-Hydroxytamoxifen, azidothymidine and RS-1 - a range of small molecules that have such an impact on genome editing techniques. Genome editing is a cutting-edge area of research and holds great potential for applications across life science, biotechnology and medicine, so it's fantastic that we can make a contribution to this field.

Steve Roome PhD, Managing Director and Founder, Hello Bio

These small molecules for genome editing join a range of affordable and high quality tools for GPCR research,including the novel GRK2/3 inhibitor Cmpd101, that can be used to study GPCR desensitisation, and water-soluble Clozapine N-oxide , a novel DREADD ligand.
