Disclosed are rationally-designed, non-naturally-occurring meganucleases in which a pair of enzyme subunits having specificity for different recognition sequence half-sites are joined into a single polypeptide to form a functional heterodimer with a non- palindromic recognition sequence. The invention also relates to methods of producing such meganucleases, and methods of producing recombinant nucleic acids and organisms using such meganucleases.

Rationally-designed LAGLIDADG meganucleases and methods of making such meganucleases are provided. In addition, methods are provided for using the meganucleases to generate recombinant cells and organisms having a desired DNA sequence inserted into a limited number of loci within the genome, as well as methods of gene therapy, for treatment of pathogenic infections, and for in vitro applications in diagnostics and research.

Methods of inserting genes into defined locations in the chromosomal DNA of cultured mammalian cell lines which are subject to gene amplification are disclosed. In particular, sequences of interest (e.g., genes encoding biotherapeutic proteins) are inserted proximal to selectable genes in amplifiable loci, and the transformed cells are subjected to selection to induce co-amplification of the selectable gene and the sequence of interest. The invention also relates to meganucleases, vectors and engineered cell lines necessary for performing the methods, to cell lines resulting from the application of the methods, and use of the cell lines to produce protein products of interest.
