    Chondrocyte hypertrophy is a significant factor in cartilage development, yet the molecular mechanism for cell volume expand during the process is remains unclear. In the present study, the relationship between Swell1, a cell volume regulated anion channel, and chondrocyte hypertrophy was explored. The results reveal that the spatiotemporal expression of Swell1 was similar with the development process of hypertrophic chondrocytes in condyles. Through Col10a1 mediated knock out of Swell1 in hypertrophy chondrocytes, we found that there are less obvious boundary between different condylar cartilage layers in which increased hypertrophic chondrocytes were scattered in all three cartilage layers. The cortical bone mass and bone mineral density in the subchondral bone significantly increased. Additionally, knock out of Swell1 could increase the expression of OCN in the femur condyle. Based on the aforementioned findings, a conclusion could be drawn that Swell1 is a significant factor in chondrocyte hypertrophy during the condylar osteochondral development process, and there was some difference between the mandibular and femur condyles, which will provide some new clues for understanding the development of cartilage and related diseases.
