Sliding motion and shear are important mediators for the synthesis of cartilage matrix and surface molecules. This study investigated the effects of velocity magnitude and motion path on the response of bovine chondrocytes cultured in polyurethane scaffolds and subjected to oscillation against a ceramic ball. In order to vary velocity magnitude, the ball… CONTINUE READING
