Effects of X irradiation on metabolism of proteoglycans.


The effects of X irradiation on matrix formation by growth-plate and articular chondrocytes, as reflected by metabolism of proteoglycans and type II collagen, were examined in a rabbit chondrocyte culture system. Irradiation with 1 to 10 Gy selectively inhibited synthesis of proteoglycans (incorporation of [35S]sulfate) depending on the stage of… (More)
