Differentiation and calcification of cartilage of a fracture callus morphologically, ultrastructurally, and histochemically resembles cartilage of growing epiphyseal plate. The fracture callus includes the various cartilage cell types found in the epiphyseal plate. Proliferating and hypertrophic cartilage had higher activities of cytochrome oxidase, alkaline phosphatase and glutamate aspartate transaminase than fibrocartilage. Enzymes controlling glycogen synthesis and glycolysis had higher… CONTINUE READING
