Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Radiographs of the skeletal abnormalities in 7 month old Smad3tm1Cxd/Smad3tm1Cxd (-/-) mice. A and B: Whole-mount view of wild-type (+/+) and mutant skeletons. Mutant mice exhibited increased intensities in vertebral and knee joints (arrowheads). C-H: Enlarged views of knee (C and D), vertebral (E and F), and sternum joints (G and H). The increased density in mutant joints is caused by formation of extra bones (arrowheads). However, decreased bone densities were found in other areas of mutant bones compared with corresponding regions of wild-type mice.
