Establishment and characterization of transgenic mice expressing human platelet glycoprotein Ib alpha.

Abstract

The platelet glycoprotein (GP) Ib/IX/V is a hetero-oligomeric receptor complex for von Willebrand factor (vWF) and mediates platelet adhesion and aggregation under high shear stress conditions. It is composed of alpha and beta chain of GP Ib, GP IX, AND and GP V. To establish transgenic mice carrying human GP Ib alpha, we injected into mouse zygotes a 6 kb… (More)
