Strain development Developed by Dr. Satoshi Ishii at the University of Tokyo in 1997. A transgenic construct containing a guinea-pig PAFR gene under the control of the a chiken beta actin promotor and the CMV immediate early enhancer, was introduced into the pronuclei of fertilized eggs of B6D2F2. The transgenic mice were mated with B6D2F1.  
Strain description Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is a phospholipid mediator with pleiotropic and potent biological effects on a variety of cells and tissues. This transgenic mice showed a bronchial hyperreactivity, increased endotoxin lethality and melanocytic tumorigenesis. This strain is useful to elucidating the pathophysiological roles of PAF and PAFR in vivo.  
Colony maintenance Cross to B6D2F1 (Hemizygote x Crj:B6D2F1)
