113-116 from the central site of the original condensation, which forms the cartilage anlage resembling the shape of the future bone, toward the ends of the forming bones. During joint cavitation, the peripheral interzone is absorbed into each adjacent cartilaginous zone, evolving into the articular surface. The articular surface is destined to become a specialized cartilaginous structure that does not normally undergo vascularization and ossification. 19,21,24 Through the processes described previously, the articular joint spaces are developed and are lined on all surfaces by cartilage or by synovial lining cells.

GOLDRING • MARY B. GOLDRING KEY POINTS Condensation of mesenchymal cells, which differentiate into chondrocytes, results in formation of cartilage anlagen, which provide the template for the developing skeleton. During development of the synovial joint, growth differentiation factor-5 regulates interzone formation, and interference with movement of the embryo during development impairs joint cavitation.

The articular cartilage receives its nutritional requirements via diffusion from the synovial fluid, and interaction of the cartilage with components of the synovial fluid contributes to the unique low-friction surface properties of the articular cartilage. CLASSIFICATION OF JOINTS Human joints provide the structures by which bones join with one another and may be classified according to histologic features of the union and range of joint motion. 1 Joints also can be classified according to the connective tissues present.
