Clonal proliferation and cell density of chondrocytes isolated from human fetal epiphyseal, human adult articular and nasal septal cartilage. Influence of hormones and growth factors.


The present study characterizes the cell density and cellular growth characteristics of functionally and morphogenetically different human cartilages. In fetal epiphyseal, in postnatal nasal septal and in articular cartilage the influence of aging on cell density and in vitro growth characteristics were investigated. Cell density was highest in fetal… (More)
