Strain description Comparison of coat colors

A mouse strain in which Hps5, one of the genes responsible for Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome (HPS), was knocked out by genome editing (CRISPR/Cas9). It was created by using two gRNAs targeting Exon 2 and Exon 7 of the Hps5 gene simultaneously and deleting about 7.4 kb between them. Homozygous KO mice have a paler coat color than C57BL/6N wild-type mice (B6 mice, see photos). Western blotting confirmed the disappearance of normal-sized proteins in the kidney, spleen, and testis. The strain is expected to be used as an HPS model.
