Genome-wide Profiling of Adenine Base EditorSpecificity by EndoV-seq

作者:David

Abstract

The adenine base editor (ABE), capable of catalyzing A•T to G•C conversions, is an important gene editing toolbox. Here, we systematically evaluate genome-wide off-target deamination by ABEs using the EndoV-seq platform we developed. EndoV-seq utilizes Endonuclease V to nick the inosine-containing DNA strand of genomic DNA deaminated by ABE in vitro. The treated DNA is then whole-genome sequenced to identify off-target sites. Of the eight gRNAs we tested with ABE, 2–19 (with an average of 8.0) off-target sites are found, significantly fewer than those found for canonical Cas9 nuclease (7–320, 160.7 on average). In vivo off-target deamination is further validated through target site deep sequencing. Moreover, we demonstrated that six different ABE-gRNA complexes could be examined in a single EndoV-seq assay. Our study presents the first detection method to evaluate genome-wide off-target effects of ABE, and reveals possible similarities and differences between ABE and canonical Cas9 nuclease.
