Two genetically altered mice were studied to determine the effects of inhibited osteoclast and osteoblast function on bone phenotype. Carbonic anhydrase II (CAII) deficient mice were used as a model of inhibited osteoclast function as CAII is a key enzyme used to acidify resorption lacunae and activate the lysosomal enzymes that resorb bone. Calbindin-D28k knockout mice were also studied. Calbindin-D28k is a protein that is expressed in osteoblasts and has been shown to mitigate osteoblast apoptosis.
