Type Targeted MutationCartagena wks
Species Mus musculus
Strain name B6.129P2-Ptafr<tm1Tksh>/TkshRbrc
Former Common name PAFR-KO, Platelet-activating factor (PAF) receptor knockout mouse
H-2 Haplotype No Data
ES cell line E14.1 [129P2/OlaHsd]
Donor strain 129P2/OlaHsd via E14.1 ES cell line
Background strain C57BL/6NCrlCrlj
1 Appearance black
Genotype a/a B/B C/C
Strain development Developed by Dr. Satoshi Ishii at the University of Tokyo in 1998. A neomycin cassette was inserted into the open reading frame of Ptafr gene. The mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6.
Strain description Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is a phospholipid mediator with pleiotropic and potent biological effects on a variety of cells and tissues. Homozygous mutant mice showed decreased susceptibility to bacterial infection. This strain is useful to elucidating the pathophysiological roles of PAF and PAFR in vivo.
Colony maintenance Backcross to C57BL/6 (Heterozygote x C57BL/6NCrlCrlj)
