As early as 1969, a special type of EV generated in a growth plate in the developmental phase was found to be in the start calcification position of entochondrostosis. In this process, EV from chondroblasts and osteoblasts collected inorganic phosphate and calcium from the ECM, followed by mineralization in the lumen to form hydroxyapatite crystals.
