  10. _________ are found within a space in the matrix called lacuna. (similar to the lacuna of cartilage)
  11. The ______ system provides a framework for the body; provides protection to underlying tissues; produces blood cells (red bone marrow); stores nutrients (Ca & Phos).
  12. Bones can be classified as _____ or _____ bone.
    compact or spongy
  13. Hyaline Cartilage
  14. Bone Tissue
    • Long Bones consist of:
    • - Diaphysis = bone's shaft/body
    • - Epiphysis = proximal & distal ends
    • - Metaphysis = between diaphysis & epiphysis;
    • - Articular Cartilage = hyaline cartilage covering the epiphysis where the bone forms a joint with another bone.
    • - Periosteum = external bone surface
    • - Medullary Cavity = marrow cavity (yellow fatty bone marrow) w/in the diaphysis.
    • - Endosteum = thin membrane lines the internal bone surface facing the medullary cavity.
  15. Bone cell = Osteocyte
  16. Basic structural unit of compact bone.
  17. Haversian Canal or Central Canal = runs longitudinally or the length of the bone, through compact bone containing blood vessels & lymphatic vessel.
  18. Lacunae = empty spaces in the matrix, where osteocytes are found.
  19. Rings or layers of bone.
  20. Volkmann's Canals = runs transversely through compact bone containing blood vessels & ltmphatic vessel.
  21. Structure: Tiny hairlike channels connecting between lacunae & osteocytes to each other & the central canal.

    Function: Transportation of nutrients & wastes.
  22. Function of Bones
    • Support - Framework supports body & cradles organs.
    • Protection - Protective case for brain, spinal cord, & vital organs.
    • Muscle levers
    • Mineral Storage - especially Ca & Phos
    • Blood Cell Formation - hemopoiesis occurs w/in the marrow cavities.
  23. Water ground substance allows resiliency; Contains fibers & cells (chondrocytes); Contains no blood vessels or nerves; Surrounded by perichondrium; 3 Types.
  24. - W/in certain bones, a C.T. that produces RBC, WBC, & platelets.
    - Consists of developing blood cells, adiposcytes, fibroblasts, & macrophages within a network of reticular fibers.
    - Found in spongy or trabeculae of bone
    Red Bone Marrow
  25. When a bone ceases to grow in length at about ages 18-21, the cartilage in the epiphyseal plate is replaced by bone; the resulting bony structure is known as the ____.
    Epiphyseal Plate
  26. In a growing bone, each metaphysis contains an _____ _______, a layer of hyaline cartilage that allows the diaphysis of the bone to grow in length.
    Epiphyseal (growth) Plate
  27. A hollow, cylindrical space within the diaphysis that contains fatty yellow bone marrow in adults.
    Medullary Cavity
  28. A thin membrane that lines the internal bone surface facing the medullary cavity. It contains a single layer of cells & a small amount of C.T.

  34. Huge cells ; Concentrated in the endosteum ; Releases lysosomal enzymes & acids that digest protein & mineral components of the underlying bone matrix, Resorption.
  35. Spongy bone consists of lamellae arranged in an irregular lattice of thin columns called ______.
  36. ______ bone tissue does not contain osteons.
  37. The spaces between trabeculae help make bones lighter & can sometimes be filled with ______________, which contains numerous small blood vessels.
