During the preparation of this manuscript, the genotype of the control animals was labeled incorrectly in Figure 5. The correct figure and legend are below.
Insulin signaling in osteoblasts favors testosterone production. (A) Testis size, and (B) testis, (C) epididymal, and (D) seminal vesicle weights normalized to BW (mg/g of BW); (E) sperm count; (F) circulating testosterone levels in InsRosb–/– versus InsRfl/fl (Cre–) male mice. (G) qPCR analysis of the expression of StAR, Cyp11a, Cyp17, 3β-HSD, Cyp19, and HSD-17 genes in testes of InsRosb–/– (n = 10) and InsRfl/fl (n = 12) mice. All analyses presented were performed on nonbreeder mix background (129/Sv: 87.5%; 129/Sv: 12.5%) mice. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01.
