Encyclopedia > Chondroblast

A chondroblast is a cell, which originates from a mesenchymal stem cell and forms Chondrocytes, commonly known as cartilage cells. Cells in culture, stained for keratin (red) and DNA (green). ... Mesenchymal cells, also known as mesenchymal stem cells or marrow stromal cells (MSC), are stem cells that can differentiate into osteoblasts, chondrocytes, myocytes, adipocytes, neuronal cells, and, as decribed lately, into beta-pancreatic islets cells. ... Mouse embryonic stem cells. ...

It was known that chondroblast differentiation could be induced in vivo by placing implants of demineralized bone powder (DBP) under the skin.
The long-term goals of the proposed project are to determine the molecular mechanisms by which DBP elicits a chondroblastic response in human dermal fibroblasts and to apply that knowledge for novel strategies for skeletal repair.
Specific Aim II tests the hypothesis that Wnt-5a is necessary for induction of the chondroblast phenotype in fibroblasts.
