    Notch signalling, via its downstream mediators HES1 and HES5, regulates development of several different tissues. In vitro studies suggest that these genes are also involved in chondrogenesis and endochondral bone formation. In order to investigate the importance of HES1 and HES5 for these...

    Objective: Expression of the de-adhesive extracellular matrix protein tenascin-C (TNC) is associated with the early postnatal development of articular cartilage which is both load-dependent and associated with chondrocyte differentiation. We assessed morphological changes in the articular...

    We have recently discovered that spontaneous hyaline cartilage regeneration can be induced in an osteochondral defect in the rabbit, when we implant a novel double-network (DN) gel plug at the bottom of the defect. To clarify whether joint immobilization inhibits the spontaneous hyaline...

    Sox9 is an SRY-related transcription factor required for expression of cartilaginous genes in the developing skeletal system and heart valve structures. In contrast to positively regulating cartilaginous matrix, Sox9 also negatively regulates matrix mineralization associated with bone formation....

    The use of autologous chondrocytes seeded onto a biological scaffold represents a current valid tool for cartilage repair. However, the effect of the contact of blood to the engineered construct is unknown. The aim of this work was to investigate in vitro the effect of blood on the...

    Degradation of type II collagen is a central process in cartilage destruction seen in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Primary cleavage of type II collagen at the collagenase site is rate-limiting and is, therefore, a critical step for its degradation. The major contributor to this...

    Background: Cortical bone analysis has been investigated at the macroscopic level with mechanical tests and imaging techniques, but few studies have been done at the microscopic level (osteons). The purpose of this study is to measure the elastic modulus of thick lamellae of osteons exhibiting...

    The present study was designed to examine the expression of Sox 9 and type II and X collagens in regenerated condyle resulting from the use of a functional appliance. Ninety, 3-week-old, mice were divided equally into the following groups: two experimental groups (condylectomy group and...
