An electron microscopic study of the tibial epiphyseal plates of growing rats reveals that the resorption of unmineralized and mineralized cartilage occurs by two different mechanisms. During resorption the unmineralized transverse cartilaginous walls between chondrocytes are invaded by capillary sprouts. At the resorption zone, numerous cytoplasmic processes derived primarily from the perivascular cells and, to a lesser extent, from the endothelial cells of the sprouts penetrate and appear to… CONTINUE READING
