Where is cartilage produced?

Where is cartilage produced?

Hyaline cartilage is found in the nose, ears, trachea, parts of the larynx, and smaller respiratory tubes. Fibrous cartilage has the fewest cells so it has the most intercellular space. Fibrous cartilage is found in the spine and the menisci….

Anatomical terminology

What cell forms or builds cartilage?

Cartilage is deposited by cartilage-forming cells (chondroblasts, chondrocytes; Figure 1.7) and removed by mononucleated and multinucleated chondroclasts. Cartilage cells are separated from one another by pericellular and extracellular matrix. Unlike bone cells, chondrocytes lack connecting cell processes.

How is cartilage developed?

Formation. Cartilage is derived from embryonic mesoderm, as is other connective tissue. Cartilage growth occurs through two different processes: interstitial growth and appositional growth. Interstitial growth occurs within the cartilage through mitotic division of the existing chondrocytes.

What type of cartilage is produced by chondrocytes?

hyaline cartilage

Location Cartilage
Function Produce and maintain cartilage matrix

What is the function of chondrocytes in cartilage?

Chondrocytes in the AC proliferate and secrete extracellular matrix to maintain and sustain the cartilage. The cells themselves are separated from each other by cartilage matrix [2]. They respond to outside stimuli and tissue damage, and are also responsible for degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis (OA).

What in the body is made of cartilage?

Some body parts are made almost entirely of cartilage, for example, the external parts of our ears. In children, the ends of the long bones are made of cartilage, which eventually turns into bone. Unlike other types of tissue, cartilage does not have a blood supply.

What builds cartilage between bones?

  • What is the most common type of cartilage?

    Hyaline cartilage is the most common type in the body. This cartilage type is found in the larynx, nose, ribs, and trachea. A very thin layer of cartilage is also present on bony surfaces, such as over joints, to cushion them.

    What does cartilage damage feel like?

    Cartilage is a connective tissue found in many parts of the body. Although it is a tough and flexible material, it is relatively easy to damage. This fine, rubbery tissue acts as a cushion between the bones of joints. People with cartilage damage commonly experience joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation (swelling).
