Extracellular matrix vesicles in rat bone after parathyroidectomy

The enzymatic activity of bone matrix vesicles from parathyroidectomized rats was determined and compared to the activity of vesicles from sham operated and normal animals. The vesicles were isolated from the alveolar bone by collagenase digestion and differential centrifugation and further purified on a discontinuous sucrose density gradient. The amount of… (More)
