Bone phenotype of Lrp5tm1Grw/Lrp5tm1Grw mice

• osteoblast function is diminished

• osteoblast function is diminished
• decrease in osteoclast number in secondary spongiosa
• decrease in total bone mineral density, trabecular bone mineral density, trabecular thickness, trabecular number, mineralizing surface, and mineral apposition rate (J:104382)
• lithium chloride treatment improves bone formation in homozygotes (J:104382)
• female mice treated with a sclerostin antibody show improvement in bone properties and bone formation (J:213541)
• osteoblast number is reduced
• decrease in trabecular bone mineral density, trabecular thickness, and trabecular number
• reduction in bone mass because of a deficiency in osteoblast number and function (J:104382)
• decrease in mineral apposition rate and mineralizing surface (J:104382)
• mineral apposition rates and bone formation rates are decreased (J:213541)
• mineralizing surface per unit bone surface is reduced in femurs (J:213541)
• decrease in bone formation rate
• bones show decreased ultimate force, energy to failure, and stiffness, indicating decreased bone strength

hematopoietic system
• decrease in osteoclast number in secondary spongiosa

immune system
• decrease in osteoclast number in secondary spongiosa
