Ecto-ADP-ribosyltransferase 4 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the ART4 gene.[1][2] ART4 has also been designated as CD297 (cluster of differentiation 297).


This gene encodes a protein that contains a mono-ADP-ribosylation (ART) motif. It is a member of the ADP-ribosyltransferase gene family but enzymatic activity has not been demonstrated experimentally. Antigens of the Dombrock blood group system are located on the gene product, which is glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored to the erythrocyte membrane. Allelic variants, some of which lead to adverse transfusion reactions, are known.[2]

Blood group antigens

Several antigens have been recognised in this family. These are DO*A, DO*JO1, DO*A-WL, DO*DOYA, DO*B, DO*B-WL, DO*B-SH-Q149K, DO*B-(WL)-I175N, DO*HY1, DO*HY2 and DO*DOMR.

Mouse Mutant Alleles for Art4
Marker Symbol for Mouse Gene. This symbol is assigned to the genomic locus by the MGI Art4
Mutant Mouse Embryonic Stem Cell Clones. These are the known targeted mutations for this gene in a mouse. Art4tm1aWTSI(KOMP)

Molecular structure of Art4 region with inserted mutation sequence
These Mutant ES Cells can be studied directly or used to generate mice with this gene knocked out. Study of these mice can shed light on the function of Art4:

Model organisms

Model organisms have been used in the study of ART4 function. A conditional knockout mouse line called Art4tm1a(KOMP)Wtsi was generated at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute [3]. Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen[4] to determine the effects of deletion.[5][6][7][8] Additional screens performed: - In-depth immunological phenotyping[9] - in-depth bone and cartilage phenotyping[10]
