Last weekend marked the unofficial start of summer, which means we’re getting even closer to seeing the season’s bounty of fruits and veggies. Apricots are one of my favorite summer fruits, both for their taste and nutritional value, but also for the soft yellow-orange hue that feels so perfectly seasonal. What better way to kick off the month of June?

  7. CELL SOURCES FOR CARTILAGE REPAIR, the resident cells of cartilage, produce the components of the ECM and represent the cells of choice for engineering articular cartilage. Adult chondrocytes have been isolated from various sources like articular cartilage, nasal septum, ribs or ear cartilage [8, 9]. However, ear cartilage is an elastic cartilage, which exhibit different mechanical properties as compared to the hyaline cartilage found in joint and nasal septuml. Isogai et al. have shown that chondrocytes give rise to cartilage tissue having the characteristics of its original tissue [8]. A chondrocyte from ear cartilage will thus give rise to an elastic cartilage. With a view to an application to the repair of articular cartilage, it therefor seems more appropriate to use hyaline cartilage as a source of chondrocytes. A comparison between different sources of hyaline chondrocytes (nasal, costal, and articular) has shown the superiority of costal and nasal chondrocytes on articular chondrocytes in term of quantity of cartilage formed after transplantation in subcutaneous sites [8]. One of the main limits related to the use of chondrocytes, is their instability in monolayer culture resulting in the loss of their phenotype. Indeed, chondrocytes lose the expression of the chondrocytic markers which are collagen II and aggrecan mainly, but also SZP (superficial zone protein) [10]. This loss of the chondrocytic phenotype is accompanied by a phenotypic shift towards a fibroblastic one. This fibroblastic phenotype is characterized by an increased expression of collagen I and the adoption of the spindle shape characteristic of fibroblasts [11]. This process of dedifferentiation is however reversible. Indeed, if dedifferentiated chondrocytes are placed in a three dimensional environment, they retrieve their differentiated phenotype [12, 13]. from osteoarthritic (OA) cartilage have also been considered. However, OA chondrocytes undergo metabolic alterations, which can lead to a low response to inductive environmental factors [14, 15]. Although chondrocytes derived from OA patients appear less appropriate for articular cartilage repair, it has been reported that OA chondrocytes may be able to recover a normal chondrocytic phenotype after in vitro three dimensional (3D) culture [16]. However, additional studies are required to clearly decipher whether OA chondrocytes could be manipulated in vitro to be suitable for cell therapy of cartilage.
