Both this process of chondrogenesis and cell proliferation events depend on the interactions between the epithelium and the adjacent lateral mesenchyme (25).
The pluripotentiality of stem cells of adipose origin and preferential expression and interplay of pro-chondrogenic molecules, either through some genetic alteration or environmental factors, are responsible for chondrogenesis in these lesions (2).
For example, a recent study by Roeder et al .[28] showed that using SPIO, MRI could trace MSCs long-term in vitro and that low concentrations (12.5-25.0 [micro]g Fe/ml) of SPIO on TGF-beta1 driven chondrogenesis optimized both chondrogenesis and MRI labeling.
Noggin is a bone morphogenetic protein antagonist and is concerned in the regulation of BMP activity after the initiation of chondrogenesis. In the process of skeletogenesis, the BMPs are concerned in recruiting and demarcation of mesenchymal cells into chondroblasts and osteoblast and stir up program cell death at the site of future joints.
