Table 1 Comparison of phenotypic parameters between mice with different genotypes at the lbab locus

From: A single nucleotide mutation in Nppc is associated with a long bone abnormality in lbab mice

Parameter +/+ (n = 10) lbab/+ (n = 10) lbab/lbab (n = 12) lbab/lbab as % of +/+
Body weight (g) 3.45 ± 0.4221 3.61 ± 0.351 1.54 ± 0.255* 44.1%
Body length (mm) 55.9 ± 0.36 56.7 ± 0.34 34.0 ± 0.35* 61.6%
  1. 1 Values were mean ± SD. Mice of different gender were pooled as they were too young to show detectable differences; +/+ mice included 5 females and 5 males, 10 lbab/+ mice included 5 females and 5 males; 12 lbab/lbab mice included 6 females and 6 males. As shown, the body weight and body length from the lbab/lbab group were significantly smaller than in the +/+ and lbab/+ groups (* p < 0.05). There were no significant differences between +/+ and lbab/+ mice.
