The role played by cell addition, cell enlargement, and matrix deposition in the endochondral growth of the condyle was assessed in weanling rats by four approaches making use of the light microscope: morphometry, 3H-thymidine radioautography, 3H-proline radioautography, and immunostaining for the cartilage-specific type II collagen. From the articular surface down, the condyle may be divided into five layers made up of cells embedded in a matrix: 1) the articular layer composed of static cells… CONTINUE READING
