Thorpe, Harry and Kumar (1991) suggested that growth is rapid during the isolation period, and that the few axillary shoots that are produced are usually an expression of buds already present on the original explant.
During cryopreservation, the samples survival will depend on the glassy state of explants, that is, the direct transition of water from liquid to an amorphous or glassy solid (Engelmann, 2011).
Therefore, we thought that if the direct communication of all factors released from the subchondral bone, including the bone marrow, with the cartilage of osteochondral explants can be restricted to crosstalk via the cartilage bone interface, cartilage matrix composition may be maintained.
Further manipulation of the explants was occurred in a laminar air flow cabinet with autoclaved sterile surgical tools.

The increase in the regrowth of explants may be attributed to the beneficial effect of sucrose absorption during preculture, which promotes both a reduction in explant water content by dehydration (osmotic effect) and a reduction in the freezing point of water within the tissue (PANIS et al.
