 Bone mineral density and IGF-1 levels in F2 progeny from a C57BL/6J x C3H/HeJ intercross
  An intercross of C3H/HeJ and C57BL/6J was generated to identify quantitative trait loci for serum insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) levels and bone-related phenotypes. F2 females were tested for IGF-1 and analyzed for femur bone mineral density (BMD), strength, and geometry. For detailed protocols see Beamer et al 2001 and Rosen et al 2000.
