    Hello, can I ask what your level is?

    i think a similarity is that they both have an extensive ECM, but cartilage has a much higher water content. They also both contain high amounts of collagen, but the type of collagen is different: type I in bone and II in cartilage. Another major difference is that bone is calcified, cartilage is not, and instead has a high amount of glucosaminoglycans and proteoglycans.
    Another difference is that bone has an extensive blood supply, especially the periosteum, while cartilage is pretty much avascular, and his has implications on the healing capacity of each; bone can heal relatively well, while cartilage is very difficult to heal.
