SUMMARY. The purpose was to study the effect of 3, 10 and 20 % rat platelet rich plasma (PRP) on the morphobiologic characteristics of chondrocyte-like rat nucleus pulposus (NP) cells, and also expression of chondrogenic genes: ACAN, COL II, GPC3, MGP, PTN, ANXA3; VIM in vitro. The viability of rat NP cells in culture is dose-dependently enhanced by 3, 10, 20 % PRP. Platelets in cultures show tropicity to blast-like cells, form an adhesion zone. When 20 % PRP are used at the 14th day of cultivation, the blast-like cells are differentiated, the cells are recorded at the stage of division. The decreased expression of chondrogenic genes is dose-dependently prevented by PRP. More effective was 20 % PRP. In these cultures, an increase in the expression of most studied chondrogenic genes was observed: 2,9 times higher for COL II (P = 0,002); 2,1 times higher for VIM (P = 0.0003); 2,3 times higher for ANXA (P = 0,0003); 1,4 times higher for GPC (P = 0.0011); 1,6 times higher for PTN (P = 0,0017), 1,2 times higher for ACAN (P = 0,0606).
