  • OBJECTIVE To investigate the presence of and quantify 2,6-dimethyldifuro-8-pyrone (DDP), a novel fluorescent compound identified as in various calf, rabbit, and human tissue/fluid samples, to determine the DDP level in articular cartilage (AC) laminae, and to investigate the changes in cartilage DDP content with cartilage maturation. METHODS Samples were obtained from calf (< 2 years), rabbit (< 2 weeks to 2 years) or human AC and synovial fluid (SF) as well as other non-cartilaginous tissues… CONTINUE READING
