The ultrastructure of endochondral osteogenesis from the proximal end of tibias of 7 weeks old normal White Leghorn and broiler chickens is described. Little, if any, ultrastructural differences exists between these two strains of birds. In the growth plate, proliferation of chondrocytes and their matriceal production is approximately matched by resorption. Erosion of the metaphyseal aspect of the growth plate is accomplished under two sets of circumstances: firstly, when mineralization of the… CONTINUE READING
