Formation of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) crystals in native collagen gels represent anin vitro model system for the study of pathological cartilage calcification. The conditions under which CPPD forms in collagen gels have been determined. At low Ca x pyrophosphate product, CPPD forms directly. At high Ca x pyrophosphate product, CPPD forms via… CONTINUE READING
