Previously, we showed that mRNA for transglutaminase factor XIIIA (FXIIIA) is up-regulated in the hypertrophic zone of the growth plate of the chicken tibiotarsus, a well-characterized model of long bone development. In the present study, we have studied the distribution of the FXIIIA protein and of transglutaminase enzymatic activity in this growth plate, as well as in the cartilage of the epiphysis, which includes that of the articular surface. By immunohistochemical analysis, the protein is… CONTINUE READING
