The collagen fibrils of hyaline cartilage vary in diameter depending on developmental stage and location within the tissue. In general, growth plates and fetal epiphyseal cartilages contain fibrils with diameters of less than approximately 25 nm, whereas the permanent cartilage of adult tissues contains fibrils of approximately 30-200 nm. The interstitial collagen fibrils of fetal cartilage are complex, having at least three collagen types as integral components. Type XI, a member of the… CONTINUE READING
