 1 Appearance black  
Genotype a/a B/B C/C  
Strain development Developed by Dr. Tanimoto K., University of Tsukuba in 2004. C57BL/6 background.  
Strain description B6.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 maintenance Sibling Mating (Heterozygote x Wild-type)
Homozygous mutant mice of C57BL/6 background show a low survivability. About 70 percent of homozygous mice
