The release is aided by the cell's inner structural proteins called the cytoskeleton, along with contracting protein machinery called actomyosin.
Chondrocytes can use their actomyosin machinery to generate the force needed to detach themselves from the matrix and propel themselves forward; presumably, such a scenario would require proteolytic breakdown and subsequent rebuilding of the matrix machinery--a process that has been observed in fetal articular cartilage in lambs [9,10].

Over sixty years ago Simon Shnoll discovered a scatter anomaly in the measurements of the reaction rates of ATP-ase in actomyosin solutions over time that could not be explained [1].
Cytokinesis in fungi utilizes a contractile actomyosin ring (CAR) as in mammals, but the process is complicated because of the construction of chitin cross-walls called septa, which is not well understood.
