Increased porosity of BK−/− vertebral trabecular meshwork.
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
(A, B) Representative 3D reconstructions of the 4th lumbar vertebra obtained by high-resolution µCT (A), and corresponding statistics of relative bone mineral density (B) from juvenile WT and BK−/− mice (n = 4). (C–F) Representative reconstructions of a cubic region of interest (0.5×0.5×0.5 mm3) within the trabecular meshwork of the 4th lumbar vertebra (C), and corresponding statistics of bone volume (BV)/tissue volume (TV)-ratio (D), number of nodes (E), trabecles (F) and trabecular thickness (G), evaluated in three cubic regions of interest (0.5×0.5×0.5 mm3). Bars: 1 mm (A), 500 µm (C); all data are means±SD; *P<0.05; **P<0.01.
