  44. How do osteoclasts change their shape to efficiently eat away bone?
    They get little indentations into themselves on the surface of the bomne where they are eating, it is hear they release the enzymes to degrade bone, by making this tight packet of space inbetween the bone and the cell it doe snot loose its enzymes friverously and can be more efficient (see picture in lecture 14 page 3 slide 6)

    • Refinement is the key word here
    • 1 bone formed Is essentially old cartilage remanant mineralized,
    • future bones are replaced by osteoclasts and have proper bone structures and mineralization
  80. How many centers of ossification do we normally have in a long bone? What is it?

    • Bone
    • Bone formation begins in the shaft
  83. So how does the vasculature and cells actually get within the bone?
     Osteoblasts form collar around diaphysis, when the cartilage dies the osteoblasts and vessels move in
  84. Which center of ossification is the first to be invaded
  85. Cartilage lining joint point of long bone
    articular cartilage
  86. Does the epyphysial plate grow towards the shaft or the end
    Toward the shaft,Constantly growing that direction, makes sense because growing on a curve would be strange
  87. What is the name of the area within the epiphyseal plate where the bone is actually being formed?
  88. Why do we see irregular shapes of the cartilage in the bone at the extremity end of the epiphyseal plate
    So that the bone and the cartilage attach together well
  89. Describe the steps of the cartilage as it goes downwards towards the diaphysis and the changes in job it goes through (6)
    • Resting
    • Proliferation
    • Hypertrophy
    • die
    • invasion
    • deposite and build up strength
  90. What is the prolioferation zone called? What about growing zone? Why would these cells what to grow so big?
    • Zona proliferation
    • zona hypertrophy
    • to make as big of cavities as possible
  91. 1st model of bone what will come of it?
    Eaten away at a later date and relayed more efficiently and more organized
  92. In the transition from cartilage to bone at the epiphyseal plate all the cartilage cells must die, how do they die?
    All extra cellular space between them is calcified thus shutting down the diffusion of nutrients
  93. So during formation of bone when dead cells are absorbed they leave behind
  94. What closes the epiphyseal plate? What gender shuts down bone growth first?
    • Testosterone and estrogen, or steroid hormones
    • Females
  95. What leads the remodeling?
    Cutting edge of osteoclasts
  96. What follows the cutting edge of the osteoclasts when they drill into bone for remodeling
    Osteoblasts and blood vessels
  97. What remodels faster young or old bone?
  98. What ends up happening to the pattern of osteons seen by the 3rd generation
    ends up overlapping old osteons and lookinging like an old pattern of unfisnished osteons
  99. Going farther back from the cutting edge of the osteoclasts what happens to the cavity?
    Gets thinner and thinner as osteoblasts fill it up
  100. In the remodeling of spongey bone how does it differ?
    An entire leaflet of osteolasts moves at once followed by a whole leaflest of osteoblasts
  101. Describe the 4 steps of fracture repair
    • Blood vessels fill the fracture with a hematoma which turns into a big clot
    • clot is overgrown by periosteum, makes cartilage
    • cartilage is invaded by first bone, making a hard callus (not as hard as strong bone) then the bone is drilled out in remodelling and becomes bone again
  102. What is the latin term for joint?
  103. Describe syndesmosis, Synchondrosis, Synostosis and symphysis
    All of them are joints of a sort

    • Syndesmosis = glued together by dense connective tissue like young skull
    • Synchondrosis = cartilage attaching the joint together such as ribs to sternum
    • Synostosis = Eventually when joint truly fuses together with bone, like an adult skull
    • Symphysis = attached via connective tissue, cartilage to cartilage ie. vertebra
  104. What is a diarthroses?
    A joint with a capsule or cavity
  105. What happens with the articular cartilage when you get closer and closer to the surface of the articular cartilage?
    The cells get smaller and smaller
  106. The compression near the surface of the articular cartilage in a diarthrosis  changes what structure
    Thje fibers of the articular cartilage vear off to the side
  107. Why is it rare to have to epithelium within the diarthrotic capsules?
    Cause it is one of the only capsules to not be lined with epithelium
  108. What is the inside of a diarthrotic capsule lined with?
