New data on the structure and the chondrocyte populations of the haemal cartilage of abdominal vertebrae in the adult carp Cyprinus carpio (Ostariophysii, Cyprinidae)

Louise Zylberberg & François J. Meunier
The bulk of cartilage retained in the haemal arch of the abdominal vertebrae of adult carps was examined using scanning and transmission electron microscopy. A special attention was devoted to the mineralization of the cartilage. The mineralization is spheritic but the processes differ in the proximal and distal parts. The proximal hyaline cartilage contacts the lamellar bone of the centrum without an intermediate chondroid bone; it mineralizes although chondrocytes bearing a hypertrophic phenotype were not...
