Thus the mechanism by which HFD diminishes [beta]-catenin activity and promotes a low bone mass phenotype (Baron and Kneissel 2013) is distinct from that of Pb and may be more distal in the Wnt signaling pathway.
The remaining 4 all had the MVP or MASS phenotype rather than the classic MFS; the negative results provided further reassurance concerning the long-term prognosis and appropriate medical management.
