The BIOQUANT OSTEO software enables cutting-edge bone biology research in animal models and human biopsy. It supports both high-throughput automation and precise manual interaction for ASBMR standard bone histomorphometry in digital histology and microCT. Unique tools simplify skeletal phenotyping, characterize arthritis models, help quantify cancer metastasis, measure chondrocyte proliferation, aid in forensic anthropology, and quantify implant osseointegration.

  • Rescue of the abnormal skeletal phenotype in Ts65Dn Down syndrome mice using genetic and therapeutic modulation of trisomic Dyrk1a AuthorsJoshua D. Blazek, Irushi Abeysekera, Jiliang Li and Randall J. RoperAbstractTrisomy 21 causes skeletal alterations in individuals with Down syndrome (DS) but the causative trisomic gene and a therapeutic approach to rescue these abnormalities are unknown. Individuals with DS display skeletal alterations including reduced bone mineral density, modified bone structure and distinctive facial features. Due to peripheral skeletal anomalies and extended longevity, individuals with DS are increasingly more susceptible to bone fractures. Understanding the genetic and developmental origins of DS skeletal abnormalities would facilitate the development of therapies to rescue these and other deficiencies associated with DS. DYRK1A is found in three copies in individuals with DS and Ts65Dn DS mice and has been hypothesized to be ...

  • Fibulin-4 E57K Knock-in Mice Recapitulate Cutaneous, Vascular and Skeletal Defects of Recessive Cutis Laxa 1B with both Elastic Fiber and Collagen Fibril Abnormalities AuthorsOlga Igoucheva, Vitali Alexeev, Carmen M. Halabi, Sheila M. Adams, Ivan Stoilov, Takako Sasaki, Machiko Arita, Adele Donahue, Robert P. Mecham, David E. Birk and Mon-Li ChuAbstractFibulin-4 is an extracellular matrix protein essential for elastic fiber formation. Frameshift and missense mutations in the fibulin-4 gene (EFEMP2/FBLN4) cause autosomal recessive cutis laxa (ARCL) 1B, characterized by loose skin, aortic aneurysm, arterial tortuosity, lung emphysema and skeletal abnormalities. Homozygous missense mutations in FBLN4 are a prevalent cause of ARCL 1B. Here we generated a knock-in mouse strain bearing a recurrent fibulin-4 E57K homozygous missense mutation. The mutant mice survived into adulthood and displayed abnormalities in multiple organ systems, including loose skin, bent forelimb ...
