Two lines of mice divergently selected from the control strain (CBi) against the positive phenotypic correlation between body weight (b.w.) and tail (skeletal) length were obtained (CBi/C: high weight, short tail; CBi/L: low weight, long tail). The selected animals showed a different relationship between body and skeletal masses. To compare the adequacy between biomass and load-bearing ability of the skeleton, and to describe the eventual role of bone mechanostat in the production of these… CONTINUE READING
