Differential elongation of growth plates is the process by which growth-plate chondrocytes translate the same sequence of gene regulation into the appropriate timing pattern for a given rate of elongation. While some of the parameters associated with differential growth are known, the purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that eight independent variables are involved. We tested this hypothesis by considering four different growth plates in 28-day-old Long-Evans rats. Temporal… CONTINUE READING
