New Study Finds No Evidence for Genome Editing with NgAgo

Khin, C, N., et. al. (2017) PLOSOne, 12(6):e0178768. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28609472

A new study in PLOSOne has found no evidence of gene editing activity with Natronobacterium gregoryi Argonaute (NgAgo).  Previously NgAgo had been described as a DNA targeting, DNA guided endonuclease similar to the CRISPR/Cas system. However, since its first report few labs have been able to duplicate the results.  In this report researchers injected over 100 mouse zygotes with the NgAgo plasmid supplied by AddGene and found no evidence of successful gene editing.
