  1. Function of the skeleton
    • Support of soft tissues of body
    • Mineral Reservoir (Calcium/ Phosphate)
    • Energy Storage (Yellow marrow)
    • Blood Cell Production (Red bone marrow)
    • Protection of vital organs
    • Leverage & Movement
  2. Connective Tissue Proper (2)
    • Dense Regular C.T
    • Adipose
  3. Dense Regular C.T (Found)
    • Ligaments
    • Bone Sheaths
    • Tendons
  4. Adipose (Found)
    Stored in bone
  5. Supporting C.T. (2)
    • Cartilage
    • Osseous
  6. Cartilage (found)
    • Joint discs
    • Intervertebral discs
    • Symphysis Pubis
  7. Osseous Tissue?
    Bone
  8. Dense Regular C.T

    blasts/ Cytes
    • Fibroblasts
    • Fibrocytes
  9. Cartilage C.T

    blasts/ cytes
    • Chondro/ blasts,
    • Chondro/ cytes
  10. Bone C.T

    blasts/ cytes
    • Osteo/blasts
    • Osteo/cytes
  11. Cartilage Characteristics
    • No blood vessels/ nerves
    • Consists primarily of Water (60-80%)
    • Surrounded by PERICHONDRIUM
    • 0 Fibrocartilage
    • Growth ends at 18-20
    • Little Healing in adulthood
    • Collagen Resists Tension

    • Poor at resisting "shearing forces"
    • Cartilage Cells
  12. Cartilage Types (3)
    • Hyaline
    • Elastic
    • Fibrous
  13. Hyaline Cartilage
    • Most abundant
    • Has fibers
    • Loated on end of bone (growth plate)
  14. Elastic Cartilage
    • Many elastic fibers
    • Tolerates repeated bending/ recoil.
    • Located within ears/ epiglottis
  15. Fibrocartilage
    • Abundant collagen fibers
    • Resists twisting and compression
    • NO PERICHONDRIUM
    • Located in intervertebral disc, menisci.
  16. Every bone has...
    • Blood vessels
    • Nerves
    • Lymphatic Vessels
  17. Spongy (Cancellous) Bone
    • Form trabeculae (beams) ti resist directional stresses
    • Cavities filled w red bone marrow
    • Found in epiphysis & center of bone organ
    • Replaced every 4 years
  18. Compact Bone
    • Bone from concentric rings of matrix
    • Bone cells are trapped w/ in cavities
    • Originated "nested rings" in periphery of bone
    • Replaced every 10 years
