The Cmr complex: an RNA-guided endoribonuclease.

The CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)-Cas (CRISPR-associated) system protects prokaryotes from infection by viruses and other potential genome invaders. This system represents an inheritable and adaptable immune system that is mediated by large ribonucleoprotein complexes, the CRISPR-Cas effector complexes. The Cmr complex… CONTINUE READING
