• at 2-4 months of age, femoral-tibial joints show structural and cellular changes correlating with mild to moderate osteoarthritis; changes increase in severity with age
• at 10 months, loss of integrity of weight bearing regions of the joints is detected, with cellular changes including cloning and cell loss
• 2 month-old mice show decreased collagen crosslinks in cartilage compared to wild-type
• lesions such as defects in cartilage integrity are observed in joints at 10 months of age
