Articular Cartilage

Matrix Remodeling Accompanies In Vitro Articular Cartilage Shaping

Articular cartilage (AC) supports and distributes loads in synovial joints while maintaining a nearly frictionless surface. The objective of this study was to determine the presence, magnitude and depth-dependence of collagen (COL) and glycosaminoglycans (GAG) remodeling that accompany the shape change of AC.
