Differences in matrix composition between calvaria and long bone in mice suggest differences in biomechanical properties and resorption: Special emphasis on collagen.


The mammalian skeleton consists of bones that are formed in two different ways: long bones via endochondral ossification and flat bones via intramembranous ossification. These different formation modes may result in differences in the composition of the two bone types. Using the 2D-difference in gel electrophoresis technique and mass spectrometry, we… (More)
