# Hyaline cartilage

Isogenous groups and interstitial growth results when chondrocytes divide and produce extracellular matrix. Territorial matrix lies immediately around each isogenous group and is high in glycosaminoglycans. Therefore, this matrix stains more intensely than matrix farther from an isogenous group, the interterritorial matrix. Collagen fibrils are not visible in hyaline cartilage matrix. 1000x
