A target expression threshold dictates invader defense and prevents autoimmunity by CRISPR-Cas13

CELL HOST & MICROBE, 30(8), 1151-+.

By: E. Vialetto*, Y. Yu*, S. Collins n, K. Wandera*, L. Barquist* & C. Beisel n

MeSH headings : Autoimmunity / genetics; Bacteriophages / genetics; CRISPR-Cas Systems; Plasmids; RNA
TL;DR: It was found that endogenous non-essential transcripts targeted by crRNAs rarely elicited autoimmunity, and target expression levels were established as an additional criterion for immune defense by RNA-targeting CRISPR-Cas systems, preventing autoIMmunity and distinguishing pathogenic and benign invaders.
