Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Skeletal comparison between wild type and Itgb2tm2Bay/Itgb2tm2Bay mice. A: Faxitron analysis demonstrates a decreased bone density in the femurs of 5 week old Itgb2tm2Bay/Itgb2tm2Bay mice (right) as compared with their wild type counterparts (left). C: Hematoxylin and eosin staining on the metaphysis area of the femurs shows diminished trabecular bone structure in the homozygous mutant mice (right) as compared with wild type mice (left). D: Representative images of the distal femur metaphysis on microcomputed tomography analysis revealed decreased bone volume, trabecular bone number, trabecular bone thickness, and an increased trabecular bone space. E: Alizarin red and Alcian blue double skeletal staining for bone (red) and cartilage (blue) of 1 week old homozygous mutant mice (right) and wild type littermates (left)>
