Abstract: Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a debilitating disease resulting from infection of oligodendrocytes by the JC polyomavirus (JCPyV). Currently, there is no anti-viral therapeutic available against JCPyV infection. The clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat (CRISPR)/CRISPR-associated protein 9 (Cas9) system (CRISPR/Cas9) is a genome editing tool capable of introducing sequence specific breaks in double stranded DNA. Here we show that the CRISPR/Cas9 system can restrict the JCPyV life cycle in cultured cells. We utilized CRISPR/Cas9 to target the noncoding control region and the late gene open reading frame of the JCPyV genome. We found significant inhibition of virus replication and viral protein expression in cells recipient of Cas9 together with JCPyV-specific single-guide RNA delivered prior to or after JCPyV infection.
