Proteoglycan degrading activity in granulomatous inflammation: Comparison between the C57bl/6 and C57bg/bg mouse


Proteoglycan (GAG) and collagen are lost from cartilage juxtaposed to murine granulomatous tissue in both control and C57bg/bg (elastase deficient mice). The objective was to extract and characterise proteoglycan degrading activity within granulomas of both strains. 15 animals (female C57bl/6 and C57bg/bg mice) per group were used. Cotton-wrapped rat… (More)
