The tidemark is a metabolically active zone in the calcified layer of the cartilage in which it is possible to show that there is calcifying activity even over a short period of time using a tetracycline labelling technique. The tidemark slowly advances in the direction of the non-calcified cartilage and analysis of double-tetracycline labelled cartilage(More)
