Each system has its own set of specific attributes. The TALEN system originated from recent advances in zinc-finger nuclease technology and involves the fusion of the Fok1 cleavage domain to a series of DNA-binding domains derived from the TALE proteins. The TALE can be custom-made to recognize almost any specific nucleotide sequence within the genome. By harnessing the double-stranded break repair machinery that exists in the cell, a highly targeted series of mutations can be introduced to a precise location in the genome.
