Collagen, proteoglycan and hyaluronidase activity in cultures from normal and scoliotic chicken fibroblasts.

Abstract

Connective tissue matrix components were investigated using skin fibroblasts from normal or inbred scoliotic lines of chickens. Specifically, the fibroblasts were obtained from either an isogenic line or a backcross, derived by crossing the isogenic line with a pure line of scoliotic birds. From the backcross, both affected (35-45%) and non-affected (55-65… (More)
