The most significant result of this decellularization treatment was the elimination of chondrocytes, which was likely due to the trypsin breaking down the chondronectin fibers in the trachea's cartilage.
Other functionally similar molecules include tenascin, syndecan, entactin, chondronectin, and vitronectin (e.g., Durkin et al., 1988; Hewitt et al., 1980; Mackie et al., 1988).
