Variation of as little as 10 per cent in the age of animals employed in radioactive strontium studies produces significant alteration in retention of the isotope.

As would be anticipated there is calcium loss from mouse bone after castration.

There is retention of radioactive strontium in castrated mice to a degree comparable with calcium loss. This would suggest the hetero-ionic replacement of calcium ions by strontium ions.
