Strain description

ADAMTS13S/Smice is established to introduce Adamts13 gene derived from C57BL/6 strain into 129/Sv strain by backcrossing. These mice express C-terminal domain deleted ADAMTS13 (ADAMTS13S) by the insertion of retrotransposon intoAdamts13gene., whereas wildtype 129/Sv mice express full-length ADAMTS13 (ADAMTS13L).

These mice are remarkable grade of thrombocytopenia caused by experimental collagen administration compared with ADAMTS13L expressed mice (wildtype 129/Sv), not so much as ADAMTS13 KO mice (nbio061,nbio074). Therefore, it's considered that C-terminal domain deletion of ADAMTS13 gives potential thrombosis risk to mice.

It's known that ADAMTS13 is a plasma protease which cleaves von Willebrand factor (VWF) specifically and deletion of ADAMTS13 activity is caused thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) in human.

ADAMTS13L/Lmice (nbio134) which are introduced Adamts13 gene derived from 129/Sv strain into C57BL/6 strain by backcrossing and express full-length ADAMTS13 (ADAMTS13L) is also available.
