Supplementary Material

Supplementary materials (Table S1-S3) provide information of the correlations among different bone properties between the female and the male and between the femur and the tibia. Table S1. Spearman’s rank correlation coefficients and significance level of whole bone phenotypes between femur and tibia in RI mice (N>2). P values less than 0.05 and their variable values are highlighted with light grey. Only strains with mouse number of 3 or more are used for the analysis. Table S2. Spearman’s rank correlation coefficients and significance level of cortical bone phenotypes between femur and tibia in RI mice (N>2). P values less than 0.05 and their variable values are highlighted with light grey. Table S3. Spearman’s rank correlation coefficients and significance level of cortical bone phenotypes between femur and tibia in RI mice (N>2). P values less than 0.05 and their variable values are highlighted with light grey. Trab BV/TV = Trabecular bone volume density, or bone volume ratio, Trab Conn. Dens = Trabecular connectivity density, Trab SMI = Trabecular structural Model Index, Trab Th = Trabecular thickness, Trab N= Trabecular number, Trab Sp = Trabecular space, Trab mBMD = Material bone mineral density.
