Aging of inVivo Cartilage Cell
A characteristic of cartilage cells is that, in vivo, small numbers of cartilage cells are present in a large volume of matrix composed of such substances as collagen, glycosaminoglycan, and glycoprotein. So, the metabolic behavior of in vivo cartilage cells, especially of in vivo aged cartilage cells, can be investigated by studying the nature of the products of cartilage cells, such as the biochemical and morphological natures of the matrix Only molecular studies on cartilage collagen that accounts for 60 to 70% of the organic matrix of cartilage can show the change of metabolic behavior of cartilage cells associated with aging.
