Hereditary factors are thought to be responsible for impaired tendon function and joint laxity. The present study investigated the genotypic variability of knee laxity and stiffness and tendon mechanical and geometric properties among 16-week-old female A/J, C57BL/6J (B6), and C3H/HeJ (C3H) inbred mice. In one group of mice, knee mechanics were quantified… CONTINUE READING
