Using a cone-on-plate mechanical spectrometer, we have measured the linear and non-linear rheological properties of cartilage proteoglycan solutions at concentrations similar to those found in situ. Solutions of bovine nasal cartilage proteoglycan subunits (22S) and aggregates (79S) were studied at concentrations ranging from 10 to 50 mg ml-1. We determined… CONTINUE READING
