What are the factors that make mesenchymal stem cells into cartilage?



During the process of growth, numerous proteins provide signals that prompt mesenchymal stem cells
to differentiate into chondrocytes (cartilage cells.) Among these proteins are bone morphogenic protein,
cartilage-derived morphogenic proteins, and fibroblast growth factors. This signaling leads to a process of
transcription which is vital to the formation of cartilage. Also, the use of various scaffolds- frameworks-
have shown promise.
