Biochemical characterization of fracture callus proteoglycans.


The changes in proteoglycan molecules during the initial stages of fracture healing in rats were characterized. Following extraction of callus proteoglycan components with dissociative solvents, the components were purified in a cesium chloride density gradient. The recovered proteoglycans were characterized with respect to their molecular size distribution… (More)
