Specimens of human, dog, and rabbit articular cartilage, annulus fibrosis, meniscus, tendon, and subchondral bone were analyzed using the electron microprobe to weight percentage content sulfur, calcium, and phosphorus. Sulfur concentrations were highest in articular cartilage and progressively decreased for annulus fibrosis, meniscus, tendon, and subchondral bone. Calcium and phosphorus content determinations were significant only in bone and confirmed values previously determined. Sulfur… CONTINUE READING
