Aggrecan synthesis of mnCPC (ac) and hCh (df) on DECM evaluated on protein (af) and gene expression level (g). Aggrecan synthesis was detectable on day 14 for mnCPC (a) and hCh (d). The aggrecan synthesis increased clearly from day 14 until day 42 (c, f). Compared to mnCPC, hCh demonstrated a significantly higher expression of aggrecan (g). The values represent the mean ± SD with n = 8 donors for each cell type, *p ≤ 0.05
