Phenotype Image Detail
Caption (A) Goldner-Masson trichrome staining of sagittal sections from the undecalcified tibias of the Fam20ctm1.1Cqi/Fam20ctm1.1Cqi Edil3Tg(Sox2-cre)1Amc/0 (cKO) mice (left) and their wild-type (WT) littermates (right). The mutant mice showed more red staining (unmineralized osteoid) and less green staining (mineralized bone) compared with the WT. (B) Higher magnification of the cortical bone areas in A showed that the cortical bone of the mutant mice (upper) had more osteoid (red stained areas indicated by arrowheads), compared to the WT (lower). (C) IHC staining against biglycan on the sagittal sections of tibias from 3-week-old mutant mice (left) and their WT littermates (right). Note that the mutant mice had more biglycan. (D) Higher magnification of the cortical bone areas in C showed that the cortical bone of mutant mice (upper) had more biglycan (arrowheads), compared with the WT (lower). (E) Double fluorescence labeling of the tibia from 6-week-old mutant mice (left) and WT littermates (right). The first injection (calcein) produced a green label, while the second injection (Alizarin Red) gave rise to a red label. The distance between the green and red labeling indicated the mineral deposition in the period between the two injections (7 days). The tibia cortical bone of the mutant mice (left) showed narrower distance and blurry boundary between the two labels compared with the WT (right). (F) The quantitative measurements of the distance between the two injections revealed a significantly lower mineral deposition rate in the mutant mice compared with their WT littermates. *** P<0.005. Scale bars: 200 um in A and C, 50 um in B, D and E.
