connect lacunae and haversion canals
histology of compact bone- what are interstitial lamellae?
they are found between osteons

these encircle the whole bone
histology of spongy bone- where are trabaculae arranged?
they align along lines of stress
*if arm gets alot of stress then they will form more on the arm
microscopic chemical composition of bone- cells- What are osteogenic cells?
microscopic chemical composition of bone- cells- what are osteoblast cells? (2)
-cells responsible for bone growth
microscopic chemical composition of bone- cells- What are osteocytes? (2)
-mature bone cells
-maintain the bone matrix
microscopic chemical composition of bone- cells- What are osteoclast?
-bone resorbing cell
microscopic chemical composition of bone- cells- do osteoclast derive from same stem cell as the other 3 cells?
no, it derives from WBC
Matrix- Ground substance- What is the ground substance made up off?
*this is secreted by osteoblasts
Matrix- Ground substance- What 3 things can make up ground subtance?
Matrix- Ground substance- What are proteglycans?
large protein and CHO
Matrix- Ground substance- what are glycoproteins?
smaller protein and CHO
Matrix- Ground substance- What are hydroxyapatites?
*this comes out when matrix is broken down
Matrix- fiber- what type of fibers are in bones?
*low water content compared to cartilage
What is the function of having compact bone periphery and spongy bone central?
strong but light weight
What is the function of having calcium phosphates?
calcium and phosphate stores
What is the function of having osteoclasts and blast and osteogenic cells? (2)
-clasts break down bone for relaease of minearals
-blasts build bone
What is the function of having marrow cavity?
space for blood cell development
what is osteogenesis?
formation of bone
what is the precursor of intramembranous ossification?
an embryonic connective tissue called mesenchyme
intramembraneous ossification- 4 steps of this process
-initial ossification center
-secretion and calcification of osteoid
-formation of woven bone
-lamellar bone replaces woven bone
intramembraneous ossification- where can this type of ossification be found in?
where does endochondral ossification occur?
endochondral ossification- what is the precursor tissue?
endochondral ossification- 5 steps- what happens in step 1
osteoblasts form bone collar around the cartilage
endochondral ossification- 5 steps- what happens in step 2? (2)
-central cartilage calcifies
endochondral ossification- 5 steps- What happens in step 3?
-periosteal bud invades
*artery, vein, and nerve fibers
**these bring osteoclasts
endochondral ossification- 5 steps- what happens in step 4? (3)
-bone grow longer
-medullary cavity forms
-2ndary ossification begins at epiphyseal regions
endochondral ossification- 5 steps- What happens in step 5?
-epiphyses ossify leaving cartilage within epiphyseal plate and at articular surfaces of bone
long bone growth- how does it grow in length?
cartilage growth followed by replacement of cartilage by bone
long bone growth- does the cartilage grow on distal end of epiphysis and/or epiphyseal plate?
long bone growth- what happens to the cartilage at epiphyseal plate?
it is replaced by bone
*osteoblasts multiply and secrete matrix on shaft side of epiphyseal plate
long bone growth-what follows osteoblasts to carve out medullary cavity?
long bone growth- what happens to the epiphyseal plate once growth is finsihed?
it turns into epiphyseal line
long bone growth- after growth is finshed, where does the cartilage appear?
on the distal end of epiphysis
*where bones have articular surfaces
appositional- how does the bone grow thicker?
periosteal osteoblast lays down bone and secretes matrix
regulations of bone functions- what 3 hormones regulate growth?
-androgenic and estrogenic steroids
regulations of bone functions-growth hormone- where is GH released from and what causes the liver to release?
