Over recent years a number of cartilage and bone matrix molecules have been identified and characterized. These include major constituents such as collagens and proteoglycans as well as a number of less-abundant matrix proteins. In several cases these proteins have been characterized by cloning and sequence analysis of the corresponding cDNA. Some properties of the macromolecules have been studied and an understanding of their functions in the structure, assembly, and breakdown of connective… CONTINUE READING
