Chondroitin sulfate inhibits calcification of bone formed in vitro.

Abstract

Chondroitin sulfate is known to inhibit formation of hydroxyapatite in solution. It is not known whether chondroitin sulfate will prevent mineralization in a cellularly controlled environment. In order to evaluate this possibility, chondroitin sulfate was added to the medium of periosteal bone-forming cultures. These cultures normally form mineralized bone… (More)
