The extracellular matrix synthesized by articular chondrocytes cultured in alginate beads was investigated. Collagen levels increased sigmoidally with time and remained constant after 2 weeks of culture. The presence of cartilage-specific type II collagen was confirmed immunohistochemically. Predominantly type H collagen was present in the...

Measurement of the glycosylated hydroxylysines galactosyl- and glucosylgalactosylhydroxylysine (GH and GGH) in combination with other amino acids has been based on ion-exchange chromatography followed by reaction with ninhydrin. Here, a rapid and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic method with fluorimetric detection has been...

A high-performance liquid chromatographic assay was developed for pyridinium crosslinks and pentosidine in mature collagen of a wide variety of connective tissue hydrolysates by a simple two-step isocratic assay using a reversed-phase column. The crosslinks (including the internal standard pyridoxine) were optimally detected by their native...

A biomechanical failure of the collagen network is postulated in many hypotheses of the development of osteoarthritis with advancing age. Here we investigate the accumulation of non-enzymatic glycation (NEG) products in healthy human articular cartilage, its relation to tissue remodelling and its role in tissue stiffening. Pentosidine levels...

Doxycycline (DOX) profoundly inhibited collagen synthesis by differentiated articular chondrocytes. At 25 microM, the rate of collagen synthesis was suppressed by more than 50% without affecting cell proliferation (DNA levels) and general protein synthesis (35S-Met and 35S-Cys incorporation). Steady-state mRNA levels of type II collagen were...

The first objective of this study was to determine if the cumulative effects of impact or smoothly arising compression would damage the matrix of articular cartilage. Canine cartilage explants were subjected to repeated impacts or to smoothly arising compressions of as much as 20 MPa at 0.3 Hz for as long as 120 minutes. An increase in the water...

Objective - To determine variations in biochemical characteristics of equine articular cartilage in relation to age and the degree of predisposition for osteochondral disease at a specific site. Sample Population - Articular cartilage specimens from 53 horses 4 to 30 years old. Procedure - Healthy specimens were obtained from 2 locations on the...

Swelling of cartilage, one of the early signs of osteoarthritis (OA), is considered to be the result of a collagen network that has lost its integrity. So far, no quantitative data directly support this assertion: combined measurements of the state of the collagen network per se and the degree of swelling are lacking. Degraded collagen molecules...

Bruck syndrome is characterized by the presence of osteoporosis, joint contractures, fragile bones, and short stature. We report that lysine residues within the telopeptides of collagen type I in bone are underhydroxylated, leading to aberrant crosslinking, but that the lysine residues in the triple helix are normally modified. In contrast to...

Objectives - To investigate age related and site specific variations in turnover and chemistry of the collagen network in healthy tendons as well as the role of collagen remodelling in the degeneration of the supraspinatus tendon (ST-D) in rotator cuff tendinitis. Methods - Collagen content and the amount of hydroxylysine (Hyl),...

Objective. To examine the effect of nonenzymatic glycation of cartilage extracellular matrix on the synthetic activity of chondrocytes. Methods. The proteoglycan-synthesis rate (35SO42- incorporation) and levels of advanced nonenzymatic glycation (determined by high-performance liquid chromatography measurement of pentosidine) were evaluated in...

The aim of this study was to evaluate topographical differences in the biochemical composition of the extracellular matrix of articular cartilage of the normal equine fetlock joint. Water content, DNA content, glycosaminoglycan (GAG) content and a number of characteristics of the collagen network (total collagen content, levels of hydroxylysine-...

Biochemical heterogeneity of cartilage within a joint is well known in mature individuals. It has recently been reported that heterogeneity for proteoglycan content and chondrocyte metabolism in sheep develops postnatally under the influence of loading. No data exist on the collagen network in general or on the specific situation in the horse....

The brittleness of bone in patients with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) has been attributed to an aberrant collagen network. However, the role of collagen in the loss of tissue integrity has not been well established. To gain an insight into the biochemistry and structure of the collagen network, the cross-links hydroxylysylpyridinoline (HP) and...

Although >80% of the mineral in mammalian bone is present in the collagen fibrils, limited information is available about factors that determine a proper deposition of mineral. This study investigates whether a specific collagen matrix is required for fibril mineralization. Calcifying callus from dog tibias was obtained at various times (3-21...
