Figure 3: (A) Cytofluorometry with propidium iodide staining showing diploid DNA content in cultured chondrocytes, suggesting that cultured chondrocytes maintained 100 per cent diploidy in the defined chondrocyte growth medium, with no evidence of aneuploidy, haploidy or tetraploidy. The X-axis represents the relative fluorescence intensity proportional to the DNA content. (B) Percentage of cells in the G1, G2 and S phases over successive passages. S phase index indicated that chondrocytes were actively proliferating during monolayer cultivation P <0.05 compared to P0.
