Effects of SML on the expression of cathepsin K and calcitonin receptor (CalcR) in OVX mice. RNA was extracted from the bone marrow cells of OVX mice, and a the mRNA levels of cathepsin K and b calcitonin receptor were assessed by real-time PCR assay. β-actin was considered an internal control. Data are the mean ± S.E.M. of three independent experiments (n = 7) for all groups. Means unlike letters in a column with differ significantly (p < 0.05)
