Mandibular condylar cartilage differs from primary cartilage in morphological organization of the chondrocytes and in responses to biomechanical stress and humoral factors. For the first time, we describe the expression of Bmp3 mRNA in relation to types I, II and X collagen mRNA (as determined by in situ hybridization) in chondrocytes of the rat mandibular… CONTINUE READING
