Adaptation of Tibial Structure and Strength to Axial Compression Depends on Loading History in Both C57BL/6 and BALB/c Mice


Tibial compression can increase murine bone mass. However, loading protocols and mouse strains differ between studies, which may contribute to conflicting results. We hypothesized that bone accrual is influenced more by loading history than by mouse strain or animal handling. The right tibiae of 4-month-old C57BL/6 and BALB/c mice were subjected to axial… (More)
