Differential effects of parathyroid hormone on chick growth plate and articular chondrocytes


Parathyroid hormone (PTH) binds specifically to the hypertrophic region of growth plate cartilage [16]. This specific binding suggests a role for this hormone in chondrocyte maturation. Enzymatically isolated chick articular and growth plate chondrocytes grown in monolayer culture were used to assay the direct effects of PTH on chondrocytes. The articular… (More)
