What does collagen usually stain acidiphilic
What is the territorial matrix area adjeacent to chondrocytes. Lacks fibers and can affect staining
What is the perichondrium vascular layer around the cartilage that provides support
2 layers of perichondrium fibrous layer and chondrogenic layer
What makes up the fibrous layer type 1 collagen and fibroblast
Is the fibrous layer vascular YES
What makes up the chondrogenic layer undifferentiated cells that give rise to chondrocytes
Describe appositional growth cells of chondrogenic layer proliferate and turn to chondroblast. They then lay down cartilage layer by layer
describe interstital growth chondrocytes within the cell expand divide. Their daughter cells then lay down cartilage. About 70% water
