Characteristic features include a small, lytic lesion in the epiphysis of long bones, and the finding of chondroblasts, chondroid matrix, and assorted secondary elements on microscopy.
Thus, the idea of complementary, live biomaterials being used to give rise to osteoblasts or chondroblasts was introduced.
The development of long bones in poultry from the histogenesis process of all the wing skeleton part to the differentiation of mesenchymal cells to chondroblasts and osteoblasts are described with a lot of
Lansdown's study has surveyed the differentiation of mesenchymal cells to chondroblasts and osteoblasts and the development method of cartilage and bone structure in humerus and wing skeleton considering the age of the quail (coturnix c.
The presence of chondroblasts and hyaline matrix with or without focal calcification will differentiate chondroblastoma from benign giant-cell tumours.
It is believed that mesenchymal cells are able to differentiated into osteoblasts and chondroblasts, stimulated by local factors like bone morphogenetic proteins, platelet-derived growth factor, interleukin, fibroblast growth factor, insulin-like growth factor, granulocyte-colony-stimulating factors and granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factors (Vaccaro et al.
Areas of epithelioid differentiation, typically with more closely packed chondroblasts with eosinophilic cytoplasm, may be mistaken for metastatic breast or lung carcinoma, the 2 lesions that most frequently metastasize to the temporal bone.
It is widely known that recombinant human morphogenetic protein type 2 (rhBMP-2), chosen for this study, is an osteoinductor protein that acts chemotactically in the differentiation of mesenchymal cells into bone synthezed cells, like osteoblasts and chondroblasts (Ducy & Karsenty 2000; Schilephake 2002; Arosarena & Collins 2005).
Clavicular chondroblasts arise from undifferentiated connective cells and these chondroblasts are not aligned in columns that characterizes growth plates.
