What do osteoblasts do? synthesize osteoid [unmiuneralized bone matrix] and mineralize osteoid
What can osteocytes do? they hav ea livmited ability to produce and resorb bone
What do osteoprogenitor cells come from? mesenchymal stem cells; they are located in the periosteum and early endosteum
What are bone lining cells? quiescent osteoblasts; simple squamous cells on bone surface; connected via gap junctions
What is howshi's lacunae? shallow indentation caused by the degradation of bone by osteoclasts
What is the environment like around an osteoclast? acidic environment which demineralizes osteoid and provides optimal activity of acid hydrolases
What is intramembranous ossification? bone formed directly by condensation of mesenchymal cells; e.g. flat bones of skull, clavicle, mandible
What is endochondral ossification? bone formed from cartilage model, axial skeleton and bones fo extremeties
Describe the order of endochondral ossification. cartilage model; periosteal bone collar [dense layer outside; chondrocytes hypertroph-->Type II collagen; Cartilage matrix calcifies & chondrocytes degernate; blood vessels invade by osteoprogenitor & hemnopoietic cells; bone matrix-->calcified cartilage
Describe how an epiphyseal plate is formed. there are 2 centers of ossification and the plate forms between. chondrocyte proliferation ceases and epiphyseal closes after maximal grow is achieved
Wher is the primary center of ossification? shaft
Where is the secondary center of ossification and when does it start? heads; shortly after birth
Wshat is the epiphyseal plate? responsible for longitudinal growth of bones
Where is the artiuclar cartilage? on the ends
