1. The microinjection system for the embryos of E. carinicauda was successfully constructed. Using this system, the exogenous EGFP mRNA was injected into the single-cell embryos of E. carinicauda. The EGFP fluorescence was monitored 20 hour after injection. EGFP-mRNA-injected embryos displayed ubiquitous EGFP expression under the exciting light.
2. Based on the sequence of EcChi4, the gRNA target site was designed by the online tool ZiFiT. According to the gRNA target site, the DNA template of the gRNA was synthesized, and the gRNA was in vitro transcripted using the DNA template. On the other hand, the Cas9 mRNA was synthesized using the linearized plasmid pCMV-Cas9 as template. Using the microinjection system, Cas9 mRNA and gRNA were coinjected into the single-cell embryos of E. carinicauda. When the manipulated embryos developed into post larvae, the genome of the larvae was extracted, then the T7EI assay and Sanger sequencing were used to detect the mutation in the target loci of EcChi4. As the results shown, 50% of manipulated larvae have indels mutations on the target site of EcChi4. The statistic results of the weight, length and morphology of the mutant shrimps showed that, the mutations on EcChi4 did not have significant influence on the growth and development of E. carinicauda.
3. Based on the data of transcriptome and RACE technology, the full-length cDNA of ferritin from E. carinicauda (named EcFer) was obtained. An iron-responsive element (IRE) was identified on the 5’-UTR of EcFer. Using real-time PCR, the expression pattern of EcFer in different developmental stages and different tissues of shrimp were analyzed. In addition, the expression of EcFer was significantly up-regulated by metal ion stimulation. At last, EcFer was recombinantly expressed in Pichia pastoris and the activity of purified recombinant EcFer was identified.
