Redifferentiation of dedifferentiated bovine articular chondrocytes in alginate culture under low oxygen tension.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To determine the influence of low oxygen tension on the redifferentiation and matrix production of dedifferentiated articular chondrocytes in monolayer and alginate bead culture. METHODS Bovine articular chondrocytes were isolated enzymatically. After multiplication and dedifferentiation in a 2-week monolayer culture under 21% oxygen, the cells… (More)
