62 Some interactions of cells with surrounding matrix are mediated through the cytoskeleton. Cytoskeletal proteins are essential for numerous cellular functions, including mitosis, cell motility, intracellular movement, and organization of organelles. 62 Cell surface movements are controlled by interactions of the actin molecules with myosins in the cytoplasm, enabling contractility and cell movement. Actin fiber formation is regulated by the Rho family of G proteins. Actin filaments are flexible, whereas microtubules are more rigid structures.

74 Growth plate chondrocytes generate bone growth through proliferation and hypertrophy during maturation through the endochondral calcification pathway74 (Figure 3). Chondrocytes can be grown and studied in culture. Isolation of these cells can be achieved by the digestion of the cartilage tissues with collagenase or combinations of collagenase, hyaluronidase, and trypsin. Chondrocytes in monolayer culture tend to dedifferentiate, and lose their expression of type II collagen and other phenotypic markers such as proteoglycan synthesis.

79 The nucleus contains the genetic blueprint for the organism. DNA molecules, along with accompanying proteins such as histones, form complexes called chromosomes. 79 Through a vast signaling network, the nucleus is the site of gene and, subsequently, protein expression. 91 The outside of the membrane is continuous with the rough endoplasmic reticulum and both are studded with ribosomes. 91 Passage of larger molecules such as proteins is regulated and mediated by carrier proteins. The separation that the nuclear envelope provides to the nucleus from the cytosol allows for posttranscriptional modifications that are not possible in prokaryotes.
