Abstract Homology-directed repair (HDR) induced by site specific DNA double-strand breaks with CRISPR-Cas9 is a precision gene editing approach that occurs at low frequency in comparison to indel forming non-homologous end joining (NHEJ). In order to obtain high HDR percentages in mammalian cells, we engineered a Cas9 protein fused to a monoavidin domain to bind biotinylated donor DNA. In addition, we used the cationic polymer, polyethylenimine, to deliver Cas9?donor DNA complexes into cells. Improved HDR percentages of up to 90% in three loci tested (CXCR4, EMX1, and TLR) in standard HEK293T cells were observed. Our results suggest that donor DNA biotinylation and Cas9?donor conjugation in addition to delivery influence HDR efficiency.
