This raises the obvious question of whether the collagen and glycosaminoglycans produced by the inducers plays any role in the initiation of chondrogenesis within the somitic mesoderm. This was after-all the motivation for looking at these matrices in the first place. Two experimental approaches have been utilised: — enzymatic removal of extracellular matrix from notochord or spinal cord and testing of retention of inductive ability, or addition of matrix products to otherwise unstimulated somites.
