Several proteins may play a role in bone formation. The C-propeptide of type II collagen is intimately associated with endochondral bone formation in bovine growth plate. We have used an antibody against this peptide to determine its immunofluorescent distribution in early stages of embryonic chick limb development with emphasis on first bone formation… CONTINUE READING
