4 main bone cells

what type of bone cell is located in a individual lacunae? osteocytes
mature bone cells are osteocytes
these cells do not divide within lacunae osteocytes
most numerous bone cells are osteocytes
these types of cells maintain bone matrix osteocytes
will participate in the repair of damaged bone osteocytes
can convert to osteoblasts or osteoprogenitor cells osteocytes
types of cells that build bone osteoblasts
thee cells produce new bone matrix by depositing calcium salts and proteins osteoblasts
they become osteocytes once trapped in the matrix osteoblasts
these cells continually divide to produce daughter cells osteoprogenitor cells
a type of stem cells osteoprogenitor cells
osteoprogenitor cells are located in the - inner cellular layer of the periosteum - the endosteum, which lines the medullary cavity - lining of passageways containing blood vessels
these cells breaks down bone osteoclasts
come from cells that produce white blood cells osteoclasts
derived from stem cells that produce monocytes and macrophages osteoclasts
responsible for osteolysis (dissolve bone matrix) osteoclasts
these cells are continually involved in remodeling osteoblasts and osteoclasts
maintains bone shape and composition of bone matrix osteoclasts
