During fetal development, cavitation occurs within the primitive skeleton along planes destined to become the articular surfaces of synovial joints. A histochemical study of human fetal limbs was undertaken to identify the cell types involved in this cavitation and the possible role of interactions between cells and extracellular matrix. Cryostat sections were stained with antibodies to CD68, factor VIII related antigen, prolyl hydroxylase, beta 1 integrin, VCAM-1, proliferating cell nuclear… CONTINUE READING
