Construction of tissue-engineered cartilage with BMP7 gene-transfected chondrocytes.

In this study, the expression of bone morphogenetic protein-7 (BMP7) was investigated in tissue-engineered cartilage constructed using chondrocytes transfected with the BMP7 gene and that constructed using non-transfected chondrocytes after 7, 14, 21 and 28 days. The volume of the BMP7 gene-transfected tissue-engineered cartilage culture after 5 - 7 days… CONTINUE READING
