The middle portion of Meckel's cartilage resembles endochondral bone formation accompanied by chondrocyte hypertrophy and death, cartilaginous matrix calcification, and chondroclastic resorption. We examined Meckel's cartilage specimens from mice mandibles taken on embryonic days 14-16 (E14-E16) using immunohistochemistry for hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha… CONTINUE READING
