Animals were assessed using densitometer dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), material testing solutions (MTS) systems, and computed tomography (µCT 40 and pQCT).

Procedures conducted:
• body weight 
• muscle weights  Quadriceps muscle.
• DXA  Femur bone mineral density and content, thigh cross sectional areas.
• bone dimensions  Femur.
• computed tomography  Bone morphology (femur).
• biomechanical test  Bone strength.

Mice: inbred   10 strains   ♀♂   age 16wks   1 experimental group
