Calvaria and clavicle abnormalities in Gsk3btm1Jrw/Gsk3b+, Runx2tm1Kish/Runx2+, and Gsk3btm1Jrw/Gsk3b+ Runx2tm1Kish/Runx2+ mice

skeleton
N
• heterozygous embryos (E15.5-E18.5) and newborns show no significant abnormalities in skeletal development except for alterations in clavicle and cranial bone morphology
• heterozygotes show retarded ossification of interparietal bones
• heterozygotes show retarded ossification of supraoccipital bones
• heterozygotes show retarded ossification of parietal bones
• heterozygotes exhibit hypoplastic nasal bones relative to wild-type mice
• heterozygotes exhibit hypoplastic clavicles relative to wild-type mice (J:40783)
• in adults, the degree of hypoplasia varies from a tiny ossification center at the acromial end to a thin clavicle of normal length; such skeletal changes are reminiscent of human cleidocranial dysplasia (J:40783)
• administration of lithium chloride to embryos through pregnant and lactating dams from E7.5 to 3 weeks of age restores the clavicle abnormality (J:129364)
• delay in closure of the fontanelle
• administration of lithium chloride to embryos through pregnant and lactating dams from E7.5 to 3 weeks of age restores the fontanelle abnormality

homeostasis/metabolism
• cold-exposed mice exhibit lower body temperatures than similarly treated wild-type mice

endocrine/exocrine glands
• height of thyroid epithelial cells is higher than in wild-type mice
• follicles are small with shorter diameters compared to in wild-type mice

growth/size/body
N
• heterozygotes are fertile and normal in gross appearance and body weight relative to wild-type mice

immune system

craniofacial
• heterozygotes show retarded ossification of interparietal bones
• heterozygotes show retarded ossification of supraoccipital bones
• heterozygotes show retarded ossification of parietal bones
• heterozygotes exhibit hypoplastic nasal bones relative to wild-type mice
