Prokaryotic Argonaute (pAGO) is the pivotal enzyme in the host defense system by mediating nucleic acid molecules. As the DNA-guided endonuclease from eubacterium Thermus thermophilus, TtAGO protein targets cognate DNA without the restriction of a PAM (protospacer adjacent motif) or PFS (protospacer flanking site) on the target sequence, expanding the selection range of available target DNA sequence. Besides, compared with CRISPR/Cas systems, TtAGO have remarkable advantages as TtAGO endonuclease utilizes guide DNA rather than guide RNA in directing target DNA cleavage, which is more convenient for in vitro applications as guide DNA is more stable in ambient temperature, easier and cost-saving to synthesize than guide RNA.
These capacities enable TtAGO as a powerful programmable DNA endonuclease directed by short guide DNAs in efficient Nucleic Acid Detection systems as well as in versatile Synthetic Biology platforms.
