An N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea mutagenesis screen in mice was performed to isolate regulators of circulating platelet number. We report here recessive thrombocytopenia and kidney disease in plt1 mice, which is the result of a severe but partial loss-of-function mutation in the gene encoding glycoprotein-N-acetylgalactosamine-3-β-galactosyltransferase (C1GalT1), an enzyme essential for the synthesis of extended mucin-type O-glycans. Platelet half-life and basic hemostatic parameters were unaffected in...[Show more]
