Red-colored bones were first found in Guishan goats in the 1980s, and they were subsequently designated red-boned Guishan goats. However, the difference remains unclear between the bone mineral density (BMD) or elemental composition in bones between red-boned Guishan goats and common Guishan goats. Analysis of femoral bone samples by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry revealed an increase in bone mineral density in the femoral diaphysis and distal femur of red-boned Guishan goats at 18 and 36 months of age. The data revealed that BMD increased in both the red-boned and common Guishan goats from 18 to 36 months of age. The data also indicated that the ratio of the BMD values of red-boned to common Guishan goats was higher at 36 months of age than they were at 18 months of age. Furthermore, the levels of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, barium, zinc, manganese, and aluminum were significantly higher in red-boned Guishan goats than common Guishan goats at 18 and 36 months of age. The results indicate that the red-boned Guishan goats were linked to the elevated levels of mineral salts observed in the bones and that this in turn may be linked to the elevated BMD levels encountered in red-boned Guishan goats. These reasons may be responsible for the red coloration in the bones of red-boned Guishan goats.

The preparation of the potassium and calcium salts of alizarin and of 3-nitroalizarin is described. Their structures have been established and compared with those of salts of complex alizarates containing the same metals, which have been described in the preceding parts of this series. It was already known that, prior to complex formation, salt formation must take place. With the knowledge of the structure of these salts, the mechanism of complex formation following salt formation has been estab...
We had reason to doubt the correctness of current opinion that the formula of the calcium–aluminium lake of alizarin (Turkey Red) is Ca2A13Az4 (where Az represents an alizarin molecule minus two hydroxylic hydrogen atoms). We therefore carried out a further study of this complex, the results of which are presented in this paper. The molecular structure of the complex has been established. The complex has been prepared in vitro and purified by washing, crystallisation, and chromatographic separat...
The molecular structure of some metal complexes of 3-nitroalizarin, 3-aminoalizarin, and sodium 3-alizarinsulphonate has been established. It has been found that all these compounds have the same basic structure as that of the corresponding complexes of alizarin, as discussed in Part II of this series.
The molecular structures of some complexes of alizarin have been established. It has been shown that all these compounds have the sane general type of structure and that they consist of a complex anion (a chelate of alizarin with a trivalent metal) with a uni-, bi- or quadri-valent metal cation. Before complex formation, salt formation of the alizarin molecule is necessary, because otherwise complex formation will be very slow.

Rats fed an iron-deficient diet develop decreased bone mass and increased fragility. This study documents that rats fed two minerals likely to be low in American diets, calcium and iron, had dramatic changes in bone density and morphometry. Weanling male Long-Evans rats were fed a diet that was either deficient in iron (5- 8 mg/kg or 89 -143 mol/kg diet), low in calcium (1.0 g/kg Ca or 0.025 mol/kg diet) or deficient in both minerals or a control diet with adequate iron and calcium. Eight rats i...

Objective: The aim of this study was to examine the effect of manganese (Mn) alone and with the addition of copper (Cu) in the inhibition of osteopenia induced by ovariectomy (OVX) in rats. Study conditions: Four lots of 100-day-old female Wistar rats were divided into experimental groups of 15 each. One group received a diet supplemented with 40 mg/kg of Mn per kilogram of feed (OVX+Mn). The second group received the same diet as the first, but with an additional 15 mg/kg of copper (OVX+Mn+Cu)....

The adult skeleton regenerates by temporary cellular structures that comprise teams of juxtaposed osteoclasts and osteoblasts and replace periodically old bone with new. A considerable body of evidence accumulated during the last decade has shown that the rate of genesis of these two highly specialized cell types, as well as the prevalence of their apoptosis, is essential for the maintenance of bone homeostasis; and that common metabolic bone disorders such as osteoporosis result largely from a ...

MC3T3-E1 cells, grown in the presence of serum and ascorbate, express alkaline phosphatase and produce an extensive collagenous extracellular matrix that can be mineralized by the addition of β-glycerophosphate (β-GP). In the present work, we study the influence of concentration and duration of β-GP treatment on the mineralization pattern in 4-week-old cell cultures. Amount and structure of mineral deposition were monitored by von Kossa staining, light, and electron microscopy, as well as small-...

Osteoporosis is a multifactorial disease with dimensions of genetics, endocrine function, exercise and nutritional considerations. Of particular considerations are calcium (Ca) status, Vitamin D, fluoride, magnesium and other trace elements. Several trace elements, particularly copper (Cu), manganese (Mn) and zinc (Zn), are essential in bone metabolism as cofactors for specific enzymes. Our investigations regarding the role of Cu, Mn and Zn in bone metabolism include data from studies with anima...

The ecotype population of goats (Capra hircus) was created by long-term artificial selection and natural adaptation. Mile red-bone goat is an indigenous breed with visible red bones, and its special bone structure has received extensive attention. This study aimed to identify genetic variants and candidate genes associated with specific bone phenotypes using next-generation sequencing technology (NGS). The results revealed that 31,828,206 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were obtained from...

The bone regenerative capacity of synthetic calcium phosphates (CaPs) can be enhanced through the enrichment with selected metal trace ions. However, defining the optimal elemental composition required for bone formation is challenging due to a large number of possible concentrations and combinations of these elements. We hypothesized that the ideal elemental composition exists in the inorganic phase of the bone extracellular matrix (ECM). To study our hypothesis, we first obtained natural hydro...
