Mice develop a bleeding disorder associated with an autosomal dominant reduction in plasma von Willebrand factor (VWF) and an autosomal recessive thrombocytopenia. The formation of selectin ligands on circulating neutrophils is also substantially reduced. This mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of leukocyte trafficking and coagulation disorders.

Description

The genotypes of the animals provided may not reflect those discussed in the strain description or the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation. Please inquire for possible genotypes for this specific strain.

Description
Mice homozygous for this targeted mutation are viable, fertile, and normal in size. They develop a bleeding disorder associated with an autosomal dominant reduction in plasma von Willebrand factor (VWF) and an autosomal recessive thrombocytopenia. The formation of selectin ligands on circulating neutrophils is also substantially reduced. This mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of leukocyte trafficking and coagulation disorders.

Development
A targeting vector was used to place a floxed neomycin-thymidine kinase expression cassette in the intron upstream of the exon 5 and a loxP site in the intron downstream of exon 7 (encompassing the large sialyl motif). The construct was electroporated into (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+-derived R1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were transfected with a Cre expression plasmid to excise the neo cassette and the floxed exons. Gancyclovir-resistant ES cells were injected into blastocysts. Heterozygotes were crossed to ZP3-Cre transgenic mates to produce the recombined and deleted Type 1 allele in the germline. This strain was backcrossed to C57BL/6 at least eight times by the donating laboratory.

ES Cell Line NameR1
ES Cell Line Strain(129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl<+>
Gene Symbol and Name St3gal4, ST3 beta-galactoside alpha-2,3-sialyltransferase 4
Chromosome 9
Gene Common Name(s) CGS23; NANTA3; SAT3; SIAT4; SIAT4C; ST3Gal IV; ST3GalIV; STZ; Siat4c; sialyltransferase 4C (beta-galactoside alpha-2,3-sialytransferase);
Molecular Note Exons 5 through 7 were initially flanked by an upstream floxed tk-neo cassette and a downstream single loxP site, then deleted via cre mediated recombination in ES cells. In addition to lacking sequence encoding the large sialyl motif necessary for nucleotide sugar binding and enzymatic activity, the allele passed into the germline also contained a frameshift mutation within exon 8. Transcript was undetected by Northern blot analysis of homozygous mutant mice. [MGI Ref ID J:80884]

The Jackson Laboratory's Genotype Promise

The Jackson Laboratory has rigorous genetic quality control and mutant gene genotyping programs to ensure the genetic background of JAX® Mice strains as well as the genotypes of strains with identified molecular mutations. JAX® Mice strains are only made available to researchers after meeting our standards. However, the phenotype of each strain may not be fully characterized and/or captured in the strain data sheets. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a strain's phenotype will meet all expectations. To ensure that JAX® Mice will meet the needs of individual research projects or when requesting a strain that is new to your research, we suggest ordering and performing tests on a small number of mice to determine suitability for your particular project.
