Loss of caspase-2 results in altered biomechanical properties of bone.

Parameters measured using micro-indentation analyses (n = 3) include (A) Total indentation distance (TID) (B) Indentation distance increase (IDI), (C) Energy dissipated (ED), (D) Average Loading Slope (Avg LS) and (E) Average Unloading Slope (Avg US). Three-point bending tests (n = 3) were used to measure (F) Load to Yield and (G) Yield Stress. Data are represented as mean ± SEM. *, p<0.05.
