Reporter: Larry H Bernstein, MD, FCAP


TALENs and ZFNs are associated with different mutation signatures

Zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs) and transcription activator–like effector nucleases (TALENs) are of great interest for genome engineering in higher eukaryotic cells and organisms. These enzymes

  1. contain the same FokI nuclease domain and
  2. induce site-specific DNA cleavage.
