We published an improved auxin-inducible degron system, namely AID2, last year (Research Highlights). For researchers who wish to establish a human degron cell line, we wrote a protocol paper describing detailed methodologies. We show our protocol for tagging an endogenous gene using CRISPR-Cas9 for establishing a cell line that expresses a degron-fused protein.
