Phenotype Image Detail
Caption A: Radiograph of the whole body of 2 month old wild type (+/+) and Lrp5tm1Kry/Lrp5tm1Kry (-/-) mice showing decreased lucency of the entire mutant skeleton. B: Histological analysis of vertebrae from 2 month old wild type and mutant mice showing low bone mass in the mutant. C: Histological analysis of vertebrae from 2 week old wild type and mutant mice showing a decreased number of trabeculae in the primary spongiosa of mutant mice. D: Mutant mice have a lower bone mass throughout life. Green triangle indicates a significantly lower bone mass in Lrp5tm1Kry/Lrp5+ mice. Asterisks indicate a statistically significant difference between two groups of mice (P<0.05). Error bar represent SD.
