Application of selected cationic dyes for the semiquantitative estimation of glycosaminoglycans in histological sections of articular cartilage by microspectrophotometry
Of the dyes tested, Thionin and Safranin O proved to be excellent cationic dyes for the histochemical quantification of cartilage matrix proteoglycans, since the staining intensity curves showed a linear correlation with the fixed charge density curves from the adjacent cartilage.
Decreased birefringence of the superficial zone collagen network in the canine knee (stifle) articular cartilage after long distance running training, detected by quantitative polarised light…
Endurance type running exercise in beagles caused a reduction in the superficial zone birefringence of the articular cartilage, which indicates either a disorganisation or a reorientation of the superficial Zone collagen network.

Cell surface glycoconjugates and the extracellular matrix of the developing mouse embryo epicardium
Cell surface glycoconjugates and the extracellular matrix (ECM) of the proepicardium and the developing epicardium were studied in early mouse embryos by light and electron microscopy with…
Impaired wound healing in factor XIII deficient mice.
It is confirmed that in FXIII-deficient mice wound healing is delayed and the cellular and tissue defects can be corrected by treatment with FXIII, providing evidence for the essential role of FXIII in wound repair and remodeling.
Specimen preparation and quantification of collagen birefringence in unstained sections of articular cartilage using image analysis and polarizing light microscopy
Analysis of unstained sections after careful removal of paraffin and glycosaminoglycans from the tissues provides a sensitive and rapid quantitative assessment of oriented collagen structures in articular cartilage.
Impaired elastic matrix development in the great arteries after ablation of the cardiac neural crest
The purpose of this study was to compare the elastic matrix in the mediae of the great vessels of normal embryos with those from which the cardiac neural crest had been ablated.
Hydrogen peroxide inhibits formation of cartilage in chicken micromass cultures and decreases the activity of calcineurin: implication of ERK1/2 and Sox9 pathways.
Expression of aquaporin isoforms during human and mouse tooth development.
Transforming growth factor-beta induced protein, betaIG-H3, is present in degraded form and altered localization in lattice corneal dystrophy type I.
Comparison of electrophoretic profiles of normal and dystrophic corneas revealed a 42 kD protein, which was present only in Dystrophic Corneas, which may reflect the role of betaIG-H3 in extracellular matrix construction and/or amyloid formation.
