SOST gene deletion can cause sclerostenosis. Previous studies showed that there is no significant change in body weight between SOST knockout mice and wild-type mice, but the lumbar L3 bone mineral density and bone volume (BV) were significantly higher than those in wild-type mice, a decrease in bone resorption was observed in the distal femur of aged mice osteoclasts, and the number of osteoclasts in females was slightly lower than that in wild-type mice.
