Abstract: Conditional gene inactivation using the Cre/loxP system has lead to significant advances in our understanding of the function of genes in a wide range of disciplines. It is becoming increasingly apparent in the literature, that Cre transgenic mice may themselves have a phenotype. In the following study we describe the bone phenotype of a commonly used Cre transgenic mouse line to study osteoblasts, the Osx-GFP
