Integration of in vitro-formed cartilage on a suitable substrate to form tissue-engineered implants for osteochondral defect repair is a considerable challenge. In healthy cartilage, a zone of calcified cartilage (ZCC) act as an intermediary for mechanical force transfer from soft to hard tissue, as well as an effective interlocking struc...More
