The functional role of versican in influencing intervertebral disc cell adhesion and proliferation was analyzed in bovine intervertebral disc. We have previously demonstrated the C-terminal globular G3 (or selectin-like) domain of versican to influence mesenchymal chondrogenesis and fibroblast proliferation in vitro. For this study, a versican G3 expression construct was generated to examine the role...
