We have been working on the factors governing angiogenesis in the 
developing limb and would like know if anyone has any ideas on what
maintains the avascularity of cartilage. There are some old references
to an anti invasion factor, others to TGF-B, hyaluronan and TIMPs
but no definitive answer. Is it simply that no-one knows or have
we missed something completely. I would appreciate any ideas you
might have on this topic. Thanks.
