Chemical Name: 2,3-Dihydro-6,7-diphenyl-2-thioxo-4(1H)-pteridinone

Biological Activity

Enhances CRISPR-Cas9-mediated homology-directed repair (HDR) efficiency in vitro up to 19-fold. Inhibits nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ).

We have discovered that the commercially available SCR7 material supplied by other vendors does not match the chemical structure that it is being sold under. Through detailed chemical analysis carried out by our Analytical Quality Control experts, we believe that the commercially available SCR7 material, including that used in recent publications to enhance CRISPR efficiency, is in fact an analog of SCR7 that we have named 'SCR7 pyrazine'.
