nBmp2NLStm mice show normal skeletal structure. In order to check for subtle differences between skeletal structure in wild type and nBmp2NLS^tm mice, digital calipers were used to measure bone dimensions on skeletal preparations of wild type and mutant male mice. Measurements were taken at various points on the femur, tibia, humerus, radius, spinal column, pelvis, rib cage, and skull. The P value for wild type compared to mutant was greater than 0.05 for every measurement.
