Effects of products from macrophages, blood mononuclear cells and or retinol on collagenase secretion and collagen synthesis in chondrocyte culture.


Collagenase secretion was studied on cultures of rabbit articular chondrocytes. Differentiation of the cells was assessed by characterizing the type of 3H-labelled collagen produced during treatment with (1) conditioned media from rabbit peritoneal macrophages and human blood mononuclear cells, and (2) with retinol, a potent cartilage resorbing agent in… (More)
