Table 4 Percent Difference in Immunocytochemical Staining for RANKL and OPG

From: Immunolocalization of RANKL is Increased and OPG Decreased During Dietary Magnesium Deficiency in the Rat

  50% NR
  Osteoclast Osteoblast
  RANKL OPG RANKL OPG
3 Month 50% vs Control +250 -152 +320 -20
6 Month 50% vs Control +240 0 +700 -100
  1. As shown in Table 4, the percent relative difference in immunocytochemical staining in rats on a diet containing 50% NR Mg for RANKL was increased at 3 and 6 months in osteoclasts and in osteoblasts. Staining for OPG was decreased in both cell lines three of the four time points compared to control.
