Osteoblasts produce Type __ Collagen
What controls normal OB differentiation?
cbfa (core binding factor alpha)
__ downregulates osteoblasts
__ upregulates OB
__ & __ expressed during late stages of OB differentiation
Describe blood supply to bone
: periosteal arteries
: nutrient arteries
Which enzyme helps create Howship's Lacunae?
OC stain for ___
tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase
Half-life of OC's
vitamin d requirements
600 IU if >70yo
(1mcg = 40 IU)
How does PTH dosing have an anabolic effect on bone? resorptive effect on bone?
Origin of calcitonin?
clear cells of thyroid
Ca requirements in kids, adult men, lactating women, pregnant women, post menopausal women with healing fx?
adult men 750 mg
lactating women 2000 mg
pregnant women 1400 mg
postmenopausal women 1500 mg
- life span?
- stains for __?
- OC-specific monoclonal Ab
- in lacunae within mineralized matrix of both cortical and lamellar bone
Process of downregulating OC stimulation?
OPG binds to rank-L (on OB), which blocks rank-L to rank (on OC precursor)
describe rank-rank-L relationship
rank is receptor on OC precursor
when rank-L (on OB) binds rank, OC precursor differentiates in OC
Definition of osteoporosis
decreased thickness & # of trabecular struts
T score >2.5SD = osteoporosis (compares to normal young females)
What is the Z score in osteoporosis?
Z score is vs. own age-matched controls
If >1.5 SD, look for secondary causes
Target of bisphosphnates
farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase (FPPS)
MOA of bisphosphonates
Type I vs Type II senile osteoporosis
Type I postmenopausal
: trabecular bone, distal radius & vertebral fxs
Type II senile
: trabecular & corticla bone, hip & pelvis fxs, uncoupling of bone formation and resorption

unknown etiology affecting pregnant females or late-middle aged males
: protected WB +/- calcitonin
Resolves with time
Steps of Fx repair
Mesenchymal stem cells, fibroblasts
Osteomalacia is a quantitative or qualitative problem?
Types of ossification: (3)
embryonic (cartilage precursor
intramembranous (no cartilage model, occurs with true rigid fixation)
What is Groove of Ranvier? function?
supply chondrocytes to periphery of physis, allows widening of physis
What is the perichondrial ring of LaCroix?
fibrous, support/anchors physis to diaphysis
