    Tendon and motor phenotypes in the Crtap-/- mouse model of recessive osteogenesis imperfecta

    Matthew William Grol et al.
    Ultrastructural, biochemical, and behavioral assessments reveal that the Crtap-/- mouse model of severe, recessive Osteogenesis Imperfecta presents with defects in tendon structure and strength that correlate with severe motor deficits.
