Hyaline cartilage consists of sparse chondrocytes and abundant extracellular matrix. There is a paucity of experimental data in support of the notion of conceivable regional differences in the mechanical properties of chondral matrices. Upon visual differentiation of the pericellular and interterritorial matrices in each of 19 fresh growth plate samples with toluidine blue and alizarin red labels, nanoindentation was applied separately to the pericellular matrix and interterritorial matrix to… CONTINUE READING
