In three Volumes this mini book series presents current knowledge and new perspectives on cartilage as a specialized yet versatile tissue.  This first volume provides a comprehensive overview on the basic composition and development of cartilaginous tissues followed by the description of the major signaling pathways which regulate cartilage morphogenesis and function.

This book addresses Professors, researchers and PhD students who are interested in musculoskeletal and cartilage biology.

Editorial Reviews

"The first of three volumes dedicated to the biology and physiology of cartilage tissue presents in 11 chapters the chemistry, chondrocyte growth and endochondial ossification. . Each chapter is followed by many references . . Of interest to pediatric endocrinologists, rheumatologists and biologists." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 14 (2), December, 2016)
