N normal phenotype
• mortality of mutant mice was approximately 50% from birth to P21
• most mutant mice died before 6 months of age

• in primary cultures of fibroblasts, chondrocytes, and osteoblasts, sulfate uptake was reduced
• in tissues, amount of non-sulfated disaccharide was higher in cartilage and bone but not in skin
• in primary chondrocyte cultures, BrdU incorporation was reduced

• overgrowth of the mandible relative to the maxilla, resulting in bite overclosure

• at age P60, approximately 60% reduction in body weight compared to control

• at birth, bending of the tibia was present

• overgrowth of the mandible relative to the maxilla, resulting in bite overclosure
• at birth, bending of the tibia was present
• cell death in the hypertrophic zone as determined by TUNEL assay was reduced
• in the tibial and femoral epiphysis of P1 to P60 mice, chondrocyte size was variable with many smaller cells
• by P60, shortening of long bones and tubular bones were observed
• visible at postnatal day 14
• progressively worsen until P60
• the long bones were osteoporotic
• epiphyseal and metaphyseal trabecular structure were thinner, fewer and poorly connected to each other
• degeneration and fragmentation of articular cartilage of the knee joints and hypertrophy of the synovia
• the formation of the secondary ossification center of the proximal epiphysis from the tibia was delayed
