Comparison of skeletal phenotype between WT and Foxl2−/− adult mice (a) Radiographic image analysis shows the smaller size, kyphosis and cross-bite in Foxl2 −/−. (b) Alcian blue/alizarin red skeletal staining suggests osteopenia in Foxl2 −/−. Kyphosis and domed skull are evident (arrows). (c) Ventral (left) and dorsal (right) views of the pelvic girdle show in Foxl2 −/− different shape and lack of sacralization in 4-5S (arrow). Scale bars = 1 cm
