Relationships of dietary fat, body composition, and bone mineral density

Description

Structural equation modeling was applied to study the relationship between body composition and bone density. Male and female mice from 43 inbred strains fed on a high-fat (30% caloric content) diet and from 30 inbred strains fed on a low-fat (6%) diet were included in this study. For detailed methods see Li et al. 2008.
