Hyaluronan Receptor-directed Assembly of Chondrocyte Pericellular Matrix

  • Published 2002
Initial assembly of extracellular matrix occurs within a zone immediately adjacent to the chondrocyte cell surface termed the cell-associated or periceUular matrix. Assembly within the periceUular matrix compartment requires specific cell-matrix interactions to occur, that are mediated via membrane receptors. The focus of this study is to elucidate the… (More)
