TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.Cg-Agt<tm1Afu>/AfuRbrc
Former Common nameAGT-KO (BL/6)
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineTT2 [(C57BL/6NCrlj x CBA/JNCrlj)F1]
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Appearanceblack [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Tanimoto K., University of Tsukuba in 2004. C57BL/6 background.
Strain descriptionB6.B6CB-Agt<tm1Afu>. Homozygous mutant mice do not produce angiotensinogen in the liver, resulting in the complete loss of plasma immunoreactive angiotensin I. The systolic blood pressure of the homozygous mutant is lower than wild-type, demonstrates an indispensable role for the renin-angiotensin system in maintaining blood pressure.
Colony maintenanceSibling Mating (Heterozygote x Wild-type)Homozygous mutant mice of C57BL/6 background show a low survivability. About 70 percent of homozygous mice
