Researchers find cartilage-stabilizing protein also drives cartilage growth

from Health Canal

University of California-Davis researchers have discovered that the protein responsible for the structural integrity of cartilage has a major role in creating it as well. The protein, cartilage oligomeric matrix protein, binds to growth-promoting molecules and links them with the cellular framework that forms cartilage. The investigators also discovered that COMP increases the production of growth factors called transforming growth factor-beta, creating a supportive environment for the development of new cartilage. more
