Growth hormone (GH) exerts potent effects on bone metabolism, resulting in an increased bone formation in animals and humans. Acromegaly has been associated with increased bone turnover, whereas the net effect of the increased bone metabolism has been obscured because patients with acromegaly are...
Osteosclerosis ( oc ) is an autosomal recessive lethal mutation that impairs bone resorption by osteoclasts, and induces a general increase of bone density in affected mice. Genetic mapping of the oc mutation was used as a backbone in a positional cloning approach in the pericentromeric region of...
The capacity of dual x-ray absorptiometry and quantitative ultrasound to discriminate bone loss and to predict the mechanical and microarchitectural properties of cancellous bone in an animal model of osteopenia was evaluated. Thirty-five female Sprague-Dawley rats (10 months old) were randomized...
