Recent biochemical and morphologic evidence supports the concept that hypertrophic chondrocytes of growth plate cartilage are fully viable cells that play a major functional role in controlling endochondral ossification. However, events associated with chondrocyte death remain unknown. In this study we assess the viability of terminal hypertrophic chondrocytes in situ in an organ culture system viewed simultaneously with rectified Nomarski interference contrast optics and with vital staining… CONTINUE READING
