Phenotype Image Detail
Caption C: Hematoxylin eosin stained cross-sections through the femoropatellar groove from 9 month old wild-type (upper) and Col9a1tm1Jae/Col9a1tm1Jae mice (lower). Note the even thickness and uniform staining of articular cartilage in the normal femoropatellar groove compared to the presence of fibrous tissue in the center (arrow) and signs of chondrocyte proliferation (arrowheads) toward the lateral margin of the femoropatellar groove in the homozygous mutant mouse. D: Hematoxylin eosin stained section through the patella of a wild-type mouse (upper) and homozygous mutant mouse (lower). Compared with the even articular surface of the wild-type patella, the uneven surface of the homozygous mutant mouse patella shows fibrillation (arrow) and areas of increased chondrocyte proliferation (arrowheads). The fibrous tissue to the right represents a portion of the ligamentum patella that folded over during embedding of the specimen. Magnification: C & D: x100
